About this product
- DescriptionThe Devil in Canaan Parish is a southern gothic suspense vel set in south Louisiana in 1957. It tells the story of Bram and Sally Palmer, a middle class couple trying to keep apace with Sally's wealthy relatives, the Landrys, who own most of Canaan Parish. One night in late July, a tropical storm hits the small town of Techeville. Ira Meyer's jewelry shop is robbed and a stranger, Melee Mouton, arrives. The young Cajun girl goes to work as a maid for the Palmers, and quickly becomes a prisoner in the couple's bitter, covetous household. Soon an evil presence begins to haunt Melee, Bram and Sally, and the local sheriff gets involved to try to rid Canaan Parish of the devil that has taken up residence. Called a suspenseful, mysterious, roller-coaster thrill ride, The Devil in Canaan Parish explores life in post World War II south Louisiana. Author Jackie Shemwell weaves traditional Cajun folklore into a page-turning drama that explores themes of desire, corruption and the evil that dwells in the human heart.
- Author BiographyJackie Shemwell is a native of Louisiana with a degree in French and a love of Francophone Cajun folklore. She weaves personal experience and family history into her short stories, poetry and her first novel, The Devil in Canaan Parish. She's also a wife to Wade and mom to Zach and Josh (and fur-baby Zoe). She's a daughter, a friend, and a lover of coffee, white wine (sadly, allergic to red) cheese, cooking (especially other people's) and travel.
