The year is 1947. The war is over, Jackie Robinson has just integrated baseball, and Frank Sinatra breezes in over the fuzzy airwaves. A sense of relief is finally sweeping the nation...everywhere except Tobaccoville, North Carolina.
Beyond the rural fields that are pregnant with decades of secrets, a mysterious Hollywood pin-up is jailed for murder while her facially birthmarked half-sister may hold the answers as to why.
The two girls, estranged for years, share a haunting past, a shell-shocked love interest, and maybe even a cruel destiny. Through mountains of lies, the truth that inevitably comes pouring out of the tobacco leaves will come to light. Will this light reveal the path to the siblings’ foreordained destruction, or their long-awaited deliverance? Will they realize they each hold the power to set the other free before it’s too late?
A story of heritage, hurt, and somehow, hope; Tobacco Sun keeps you on the edge of your seat while you find yourself rooting for redemption.

Tobacco Sun is a scintillating tale of two estranged sisters bound together by love, loss and a deadly secret. This book is a real page turner that I just couldn't put down. This story takes you on a complete roller coaster ride of emotions from euphoria and exhilaration to frenzy and intoxication and back again. This is a must read new release for anyone looking to get ahead of the curb on this summer's best sellers!
Tobacco Sun is a wild ride from beginning to end and with each page turn I was eager to learn more about Sydra and Jimmi Lynn. Lorna does an amazing job of intertwining the stories of each character while maintaining such a vivid picture of the south. It's a must read novel for the summer!
