There are gods in Alabama. I know because I killed one. When Lena Fleet goes to college, she makes three promises to God: she will stop sleeping with every boy she meets; she will never tell another lie; and she will never, ever go back to her hometown in Alabama. All she wants from God in return is that He makes sure the body is never found . . . But ten years later, it looks like God's going back on His deal. Lena's high school archenemy appears on her doorstep, looking for the golden haired football god who disappeared during their senior year. To make matters worse, her African American boyfriend has issued her with an ultimatum - introduce him to her lily-white family or he's gone. While she would rather burn in a fire than let him meet her steel magnolia Aunt Florence, her half-mad Mama, her sweet-as-pie cousin Clarice and the rest of her eccentric and racist family, Lena realises it is time to go home to Alabama and confront the past once and for all. As she digs through guilt and deception, she discovers how far she will go for love and a chance at redemption. ************* Praise for GODS IN ALABAMA: 'A plucky heroine with a sense of humour, a gripping tale and a mysterious dead body that needs explanation. [Jackson] takes the reader on a wild ride of despair, hope and redemption that no reader is likely to ever forget. What a storyteller!' - Adriana Trigiani, author of Lucia, Lucia 'A startling page turner. This is a beautifully crafted, sassy novel, where nothing is quite as it seems. The way the final pieces of the jigsaw slot together . . . should surprise even the most jaded of readers' - Glamour This winning novel is the kind that readers crave: you can't stop turning the pages, but you wish it would never end' - Christina Schwarz, author of Drowning Ruth 'I couldn't put this book down. From the first chapter, the plot leaps forward and it doesn't stop twisting and turning until the last page' - Melanie Sumner, author of The School of Beauty
