Haunted by the stories she heard, Harris began incorporating them in her own writings. In her third novel, Harris tells of the fictional town of Beulah Ridge and the characters inhabiting it -- sharecroppers, small farmers, and wealthy landowners. Eudora Welty, a contemporary of Harris, reviewed the novel and found it to be at once exhaustive in detail and tender in exactness.
