In 1948, Miss Daisy Werthan, an elderly, cranky ex-school teacher from Atlanta, crashes her new Packard through a retaining wall into her neighbor's yard. Her concerned son Boolie reasons she no longer is able to drive herself, and over her strenuous objections hires the gentle, tactful, and wily black widower Hoke Colburn to be her chauffeur. As a Jew, Miss Daisy is also the victim of prejudice, and she gradually overcomes her subconscious bigotry to see Hoke as a true friend. Beginning in frostiness, their slow changing relationship mirrors the changing racial climate in the south through the burgeoning of civil rights movement

The robber bridegroom by Eudora Welty( Book )
2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
Legendary figures of Mississippi's colorful past--keel-boatman Mike Fink and the dread Harp brothers--along with characters from Eudora Welty's own delightful imagination people this rollicking fantasy set along the Natchez Trace. Berry-stained bandit Jamie Lockhart steals pioneer wilderness planter Clement Musgrove's beautiful daughter, Rosamond, away from a home dominated by his ugly, evil second wife, Salome. These and other characters are gathered together in a tale at once acid and gentle, wise and lighthearted, woven as much from the rough homespun of American history as the gossamer thread of fairy stories
