“Jesus Tree is a compelling, captivating story of a man's search for his past and his soul - rendered vividly by a writer of unique gifts. Stephen Doster has given us that very best thing of fiction: a rousing tale, beautifully told.” Robert Inman, author of The Governor's Lady
Jesus Tree is a fictional account of Ben Jordan, an African American man wrongly convicted of murdering a white minister in Coastal Georgia. After spending forty years on a brutal prison farm, Jordan finally returns home, where he battles to understand a world that has undergone great change, and sets out on a mission to bring the true killer to justice.
Stephen Doster’s novel provides an intriguing glimpse into the lives of the Geechee-Gullah community of Sapela Island. History fans will enjoy his fascinating portrayal of Georgia politics during the Great Depression. In fact, I would recommend this book to all those who want to learn more about the unjust and merciless Jim Crow system in the Deep South.
