What People are Saying About This

Alan Jacobsen

"Michael Rubin's debut novel, The Cottoncrest Curse, introduces us to a fresh new voice that weaves talented prose and tack-sharp detail into an intriguing story set in Louisiana's bayou country. In an historically accurate whodunit that spans multiple generations, Rubin adroitly tackles cultural diversity, racial tension, and the dangers of keeping hidden truths while moving the plot toward a satisfying, well-crafted conclusion."—Alan Jacobson, national bestselling author of Spectrum

James Carville

"Michael Rubin proves himself to be an exceptional storyteller in his novel The Cottoncrest Curse. The powerful epic is expertly composed in both its historical content and beautifully constructed scenery. I highly recommend picking up this book to catch a glimpse into life and conflict during the height of the Old South." — James Carville

Sheldon Siegel

"In The Cottoncrest Curse, Michael Rubin takes his readers on a compelling multi-generational journey that begins with the Civil War and ends in the present day. The Cottoncrest Curse is a textured story of plantation owners, the descendants of slaves, small-town Louisiana law enforcement, and Jewish merchants who live in and around a Louisiana plantation. Impeccably researched, deftly plotted, and flawlessly executed, The Cottoncrest Curse moves effortlessly from the Civil War to the 1890s to the Freedom Riders. Rubin is a gifted and masterful storyteller. Highly recommended." — Sheldon Siegel, New York Times—bestselling author of the Mike Daley/Rosie Fernandez novels
