Overview

Sweet Everlasting: A Novel by Judson Mitcham

A remarkable novel of simple poetry and poignant beauty that tells an unforgettable story of a love betrayed and a good life undone.

At the age of seventy-four, Ellis Burt remembers a simple life that unfolded against the complex, ever-changing background of the American South, from the Depression through the difficult birth of Civil Rights. In his time he loved deeply and sired a son — only to inadvertently bring ruin upon his family and himself. This is Ellis Burt's story, told in his own earnest yet unassuring words — the penance of a man of uncommon personal dignity striving for the peace he fervently craves as he drifts toward the salvation he feels he does not merit.A remarkable novel of simple poetry and poignant beauty that tells an unforgettable story of a love betrayed and a good life undone.
