Kristin Gore, daughter of Al Gore, launched her literary career with two smart chick-lit novels set in the world of Washington politics. On April 26, she’ll be taking her writing in a new direction with Sweet Jiminy (Hyperion), a novel set in rural Mississippi. As she said in her 2007 interview with us, “there might be a farm involved.”
The farm in question belongs to heroine Jiminy’s grandmother. Though Jiminy has returned to the farm in search of sanctuary after dropping out of law school, she instead discovers an unsolved mystery that dates back to the Civil Rights era. She’s determined to uncover the truth, “to the dismay of those who would prefer to let sleeping dogs lie,” according to the publisher.
