From the award winning author Jewell Parker Rhodes, a story of a Louisiana woman stuck in the wrong city with the wrong man.
Mira longs to return to the bayou, to sit on her grandma's lap again and watch the fireflies dance through the air. But she ran off with Charlie, and now she's trapped in a high rise apartment with a wailing baby who shares his name. Can she resist becoming a prisoner in her own home, her own marriage, and her own life? Coretta Scott King honor author Jewell Parker Rhodes tells a brief but unforgettable story of heritage, family, and resistance in Bayou Teché.
