About this title


A family disaster forces a married couple, who were activists in the Civil Rights movement, to become guardians of two children raised by segregationist parents

From the Publisher:

"Rosellen Brown can do anything with language... her gifts are limitless."--Cynthia Ozick.

In 1979 Jesse and Teddy Carll are at a turning point in their lives. Still living in Mississippi, where they once marched, got cheerfully arrested, and embraced ideals of equality, Jesse wants to pack up and move because the world-and her marriage to teddy-has not turns out as she dreamed.

"Brown tells a densely rich story, filled with insight, of a family in crisis. Savor it!"--Library Journal.

Suddenly a phone call brings devastating news. teddy's rich, begotted sister and her husband have been killed in a car crash, and their two children, a bewildered boy of eight and a fussy, fragile girl of thirteen, will have to move into the Carll's home. the resulting turmoil will ignite an interior battle between a man and a woman-an intimate war about their values, their family, and their love.

"Brown's fiction opens onto worlds of pains and troubles and truths."--The New Republic.
