FROM THE PUBLISHER - This novel by the author of PLUM BUN and THERE IS CONFUSION illuminates the lives of an educated, middle-class black family in the early twentieth century. Set in the small town of Red Brook, New Jersey, THE CHINABERRY TREE focuses on the compelling stories of the beautiful Laurentine Strange and her vivacious younger cousin, Melissa Paul. Laurentine, the illegitimate daughter of a black mother and a prominent married white man, endures a lonely childhood, learning to protect herself through isolation. Melissa, also tainted by the blot of illegitimacy, refuses to be ostracized. She tries to establish her own identity, but her efforts are threatened when she almost elopes with her half brother. As the two women struggle for respect and legitimacy, each of them finally discovers a sense of place within the small black community. The volume also contains a selection of Jessie Redmon Fauset's nonfiction writing, including travel narratives, book reviews and literary criticism, and articles on conference she attended as a journalist.
