Read full description of the books:
When Mary McGhee moved to a small Alabama town shortly after the Second World War, she was sure she could change her life for good: a new job, a new place, and a chance for a new life. But then she met Lila Dubose, the wife of her new employer.
Set in the shadow of the civil rights movement, Miss McGhee is a sweeping tale of forbidden love in a turbulent time.
Miss McGhee is a runner-up for the first annual Bywater Prize for Fiction.

Read information about the authorBett Norris graduated from the University of Alabama with a BA in history and a burning desire to write, having grown up just down the road a piece from Harper Lee. She drew heavily on her Alabama roots for her first novel, Miss McGhee, published through Bywater Books, set during the civil rights movement of the fifties and sixties. While wondering why the dictum write what you know doesn't apply to sci fi or murder mysteries, she dutifully set her second and third novels in the South as well, certain that the well of rich material to be found there will never run dry.
Her first novel, Miss McGhee, was released in May 2007, and was a finalist for the first annual Bywater fiction contest. Her second novel, What's Best for Jane, will be released in January, 2009.
Norris is currently working on a novel of historical fiction set in Montgomery during the years leading up to the beginning of the civil rights movement. She continues to use the South as source material and setting. “Almost everybody’s got a story about crazy relatives, mad dogs, good trucks, fishing, deer hunting, drinking, cussing, fighting, tent revivals, football, running around barefoot in the summers, better times in the past, and where the bootleggers live.”
She now lives in Florida with her partner Sandy Moore, an artist. Bett gets up every morning at an insanely early hour to write.
