An unforgettable tale of slavery in the American South Once I lived in a place where demons dwelled. I was one of them. Ginny lives on her husband's pig farm ninety miles from nowhere. Far from the paradise she was promised, this is a bleak place and her husband, Linus, a cruel master. His girls, Cleome and Zinnia, are Ginny's only friends, but when Linus' attentions turn to them, Ginny is torn. When Linus dies, things change for everyone. They helped me, but I never helped them.
