Summary
"Helen Halsey is a 'tale of passion,' in which the heroine is exploited and victimized in a domestic situation from which there is no escape. The teen-age daughter of a well-meaning but weak father who collaborates in crime with the outlaw gang ruled by his vicious and vindictive brother, Helen is forced by her uncle into marriage with her lover, who has followed her into the 'swamp state of Conelachita,' the brotherhood's extensive, well-guarded, almost impregnable hide-out presumably located within the borders of Mississippi and/or Louisiana."--Jacket
