The keepers of the house by Shirley Ann Grau( )

Abigail was the last keeper of the house, the last to know the Howland family's secrets. Now, in the name of all her brothers and sisters, she must take her bitter revenge on the small-minded Southern town that shamed them, persecuted them, but could never destroy them. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1965, The Keepers of the House is Shirley Ann Grau's masterwork, a many-layered indictment of racism and rage that is as terrifying as it is wise.

Shaken and defiant, enmeshed in racism and familial obligations, Abigail is compelled to go back through her family history in order to understand herself, her father, and the South
