The Salvation of Miss Lucretia is the latest, but not last, book in his series following the adventures of young Ted Dillion and his best friend Poudlum. The two boys are once again neck deep in adventure and action when their hunting trip comes to a screetching halt. The boys find themselves missing dogs, robbed, and held captive. Their captor isn't just a bank robber or a bootlegger this time, it's a bonafide voodoo queen! Miss Lucretia was banished to the woods for practicing voodoo by a "preacher" and "deacons", but Ted and Poudlum soon realize that instead of fearing her they've got to help her.
Dunagan once again weaves a colorful tapestry depicting the lives and times of a segregated Alabama in the late 1940's. Miss Lucretia might be Dunagen's most vibrant character to date. Plenty of research was done to ensure that although she is a fictional character, her story has a basis in fact. He masterfully rolls a history lesson into a bewitching adventure. We get to enjoy young Ted and Poudlum's continued maturity and growth as two "good boys" as Uncle Curvin would say. I am happy to report that author Ted Dunagan is wrapping up a fifth book in this beloved series.
