Jerry Mullinax's novel Enoree, an adolescent/adult novel, written in first person, is a fiction about an eight-year-old boy Jake raised in the small Southern town of Pelham, South Carolina in the 1950's. Jake's politically-incorrect relationship with Josiah, a black boy across the Enoree River, ignites embedded bigotry in the hearts of neighbors and officials, leaving a trail of ungodly deeds and death.
