From Foreword Reviews. . . “the novel is driven by its messaging: it’s most concerned with exploring what happens when people cling to misguided beliefs regarding race and the working class. Its treatments of such subjects are provocative, and the revelatory conclusion of Betsy’s aunt’s story functions as an astute culmination of these themes.

Plagued by Bad Beliefs is an unusual historical novel centered on the fallout of a small town’s rivalries.”
