Liquor House Music
Liquor House Music, the first novel written by Katrina Parker Williams, is a raw, gritty tale of a proud, yet bitter black woman, Laura Dunn, and her struggle to survive in an abusive relationship. Each chapter in the novel reveals, through flashbacks, aspects of Laura's troubled life as an abused wife and mother of three children.
As a southern Black family, the Dunns experience more heartache and pain than the average family when one tragic episode transforms their lives forever. The discovery of sexual abuse of Laura's daughter, Tyesha, inflicted by her stepfather Big Champ, sets in motion a sequence of events that eventually destroys Big Champ, Laura's son Tyrell, and Laura. Laura's own battle with sexual abuse at the hands of her foster father lays the foundation for a cycle of abuse that scars her children for life. The characters in the novel are strong, determined, proud black people with a strong sense of family and loyalty, and a realism truly representative of southern Black America.
