This sequel to Blue Camelia furthers her exploration of the rice producing region of Louisianas Cajun country. Her novels of the Cajun country overlap the era of Kate Chopin and bring us further from where she left off. In many ways they will foreshadow those of Ernest Gaines. As with Dinner At Antoines, this one incorporates a murder mystery centered on a local strumpet and her penchant for a pair of golden slippers. You will be enchanted with her interpretation of Louisiana plantation culture, the rice industry, and Cajun society folkways and mores. And, dont forget their wonderful cuisine, a she gives it full treatment reminiscent of what she did in Dinner At Antoines.
