Cold Running Creek, Zelda Lockhart
Following the lives of three generations of women forgotten by modern scholarship, this poignant novel is set in and around the American Civil War. Beginning with the forced relocation of the Choctaws, each of the novel’s three protagonists is confronted with slavery and oppression in varying forms. Struggles with the ideals of Freedom and family, often weighed against their own journeys to self-enlightenment, form the core of each woman’s life. Lockhart, a North Carolina resident, received a finalist award from the Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Foundation for debut fiction.
