ForeWord Reviews' IndieFab Book of the Year "Editor's Choice Award" Independent Publisher Awards Bronze "Best Regional Fiction South" Winner of International Book Awards in "Religious Fiction" Category Set in 1940s Germantown, Tennessee, South of Everything is a magical coming of age story about the daughter of a plantation-owning family, who, despite her privileged background, finds more in common with "the help" than her own family. She develops a special kinship with her parents' servant Old Thomas, who introduces her to the mysterious Lolololo Tree--a magical, mystical tree with healing powers that she discovers is wiser than any teacher or parent or priest. Her connection with the Lolololo Tree opens her eyes to the religious and racial prejudice of her surroundings and readers will root for her to fight against injustice and follow her heart to meet her fate.
