The Last Suppers
Many children have grown up in the shadow of Louisiana's Greenmount State Penitentiary. Yet Ginny Polk, whose murdered father worked at the prison, chose to come back to work as a prison cook. She knows the harsh reality of life within those walls, but has never seen the men as monsters. She takes special care in preparing the last meals for condemned prisoners. But when Ginny stumbles upon information about the man executed for killing her father, it leads to a series of dark and painful revelations. A beautifully written debut.
