Mudbound by Hillary Jordan

This story takes place in the Mississippi Delta in the late 1940s. Laura, a city-girl from Memphis, struggles to adjust to country living after her husband buys a farm. The story is narrated by six different characters (which I thought wouldn't work very well, but it was actually seamless).

There is one particularly gruesome part that made me say "Ewwww..." out loud. Just to warn you.

One of the best books I've read so far in 2011.
