The story is told from the perspective a little girl that has to take on the responsibility of a household. The era is meant to be just a little after slavery has been abolished. It’s a period when black Americans find themselves with a little bit of land and a little bit of hope, but even that doesn’t seem like enough sometimes.

The stories of Uncle Remus inspired me to write “The Liar”.
