BOOK REVIEW: Red Clay and Roses


Over the next few days, I will be recommending several books that I read this year and that I believe you will like, too.  These books will make absolutely thoughtful gifts also, and I invite you to follow my links below to read my reviews in their entirety.

Today I am showcasing author S. K. Nicholls.

“Red Clay and Roses” by S. K. Nichols is an honest look into the joys and ruthless realities of life in the Deep South during the 1950s and 1960s. The novel predominantly delves straightforward into lust, rape, murder, criminal abortion, lies, adoption, denial, and love, and particularly how race and gender relations intermingled within those ruthless realities of life.

My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications.
