Bridge of Sand by Janet Burroway
In Bridge of Sand, 38-year-old Dana is a widow from an unhappy marriage, untethered to any place or person. She sells everything after her husband dies and heads to Brunswick, GA, where she used to spend time with her grandmother. Her grandmother's house was replaced with a strip mall, and in an attempt to connect with some part of her past, she looks up a black man, Cassius, she knew years ago. Cassius and Dana begin a torrid affair, but she is surprised by the hostility of his family. A death threat sends her farther south to Florida, where she becomes involved in family and racial politics when she inherits a white man's store and land, and has to choose who should be the proper heir. Janet Burroway's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "It's those 'other hassles' - family obligations, romantic love and self-fulfillment - that come through most convincingly, and memorably, in Burroway's clever and compassionate prose."
