I was recently given a book by the Author Pamela Wiggins titled ” Light in the River”. The book is fictitious account of life on the Parker plantation adjacent to the Blackwater River South of Franklin. The 200 page short story was FANTASTIC! While the everyday life part of the story on the plantation is pretty much made up, there is some really good factual stuff in there. It is a great story and really gives the reader a good idea what life was like on a working plantation in the 1830’s around here. For information on how to get a copy go to the LINK below. The book is also available at the Peanut Patch, Museum in Courtland and Liz’s at Parkers in Franklin. Read it!
