Lamb in His Bosom is a 1933 novel by Caroline Miller. It won the Pulitzer Prize for the Novel[1] in 1934. It also won the Prix Femina in 1934 and became an immediate best-seller.

The story of a poor white woman growing to maturity in the Pre-Civil War rural south. The personal and extended family struggles, and ups and downs of day-to-day living, in the rural culture. The author mastered the ability to express her thoughts with rural charm, naivety, with the vernacular dialect and cultural biases intact.
