In 1972 on Mudas Summers' seventeenth birthday her beloved Mama Ella is found hanging from the rafters of their home Most people in Peckinpaw Kentucky assume that Ella's no good husband did the deed Others think Ella grew tired of his abuse and did it herself Muddy is determined to find out for sure either way especially once she finds strange papers hidden amongst her mama's possessions But Peckinp. Muddy Summer s seventeenth birthday went straight to hell Her mama Ella has been found and it appears that she has hung herself Muddy refuses to believe Ella would do such a thing and knows that her mama s husband beats her ever chance he gets Once she starts digging she realizes that the whole town has secrets and lies Set in the early 1970 s this book pretty much centers itself around the town landmark The Liar s Bench The Liar s Bench came into being a century before when a slave named Frannie Crow was hanged based on her mistresses lies Her son dismantled the gallows and built the bench If you read this book get used to hearing about that bench I think it s only mentioned in every chapter at least twice Muddy s sorta boyfriend is Bobby Marshall who is a mixed race descendant of Frannie Crow s So into the story you have some racism and bigotry The thing is I felt that Muddy even showed signs of it I think I would have liked her better if she hadn t been so wishy washy He s the only person that sticks up for her and she sorta whines her way through any confrontations that pop upThe story line is not bad for this book I love southern fiction I have lived in the south my whole life and one of the big things that sticks out in this book is the language I have never heard of a southern person using the language that gets used in this book It s one of those things that I felt demeaned southern people We have slang and we have some southern drawl but I don t think I ve ever heard the phraseIt doesn t do anyone any good to pluck their chickens in the windHuhIt completely threw the book off for me The whole book is written in the oddest language

SUMMARY Liar's Bench

Ill to hatred and corruption that have echoed through the years and lies she must be brave enough to confront at last Kim Michele Richardson's lush beautifully written debut is set against a Southern backdrop passing uneasily from bigotry and brutality to hope With its compelling mystery and complex yet relatable heroine Liar's Bench is a story of first love raw courage and truths that won't be deni. I found this book to be tedious with the protagonist whining and it seemed to go nowhere I would have liked substance about Mudus and the relationship with her parents I also have no patience for someone who keeps allowing themselves to be abused I received a copy from Goodreads Givaway for a honest review
