The Cutting Season by Attica Locke

The Cutting Season is set in contemporary Louisiana on the grounds of Belle Vie, a lush antebellum plantation owned by the Clancy family. Locke's tale explores the lives of two families that have occupied it for more than a century. Caren Gray and her family have worked for the Clancy's for generations; today she manages the entire staff, catering weddings and staging shows about plantation life in the old days. When a migrant worker's body is discovered on the property the investigation that ensues reveals just how entwined the two families' histories are.
