Honoré Grandissime is the patriarch of a French Creole family consisting of a half-brother, who is mixed race, and an uncle who is white. When a young man named Joseph Frowenfeld visits the Grandissimes, his abolitionist views cause friction among the elders. The uncle sees slavery as a necessity that allows them to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. In the heightened political climate, this conflict forces personal relationships and alliances to come to ahead.

The Grandissimes: A Story of Creole Life gives an authentic look at the complex history of the American South. It highlights the insidiousness of the caste system and its impact on mixed-race families. The author details its destructive nature and lasting impact.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Grandissimes: A Story of Creole Life is both modern and readable.
