About this title


Raphael de Baptiste, a strong-willed, light-skinned Black woman, leaves her Detroit home and moves to Canada, where she marries a Chippewa Indian and raises three daughters who experience discrimination and assimilation when they move out into the world

From Library Journal:

Asil and David de Baptiste are well-to-do physicians, founders of a hospital for Negroes in 1920s Detroit. Beautiful daughter Raphael has green eyes and a peachy complexion; her tawny parents will never accept the very black laborer she loves. They send her north to begin a new life as a white woman. Believing her to be white, a Chippewa Indian marries Raphael. One of their daughters is killed by a black man in a riot; another marries a Frenchman whose mother is Moroccan. In this romantic tale of the "great American melting-pot," skin color and racial labels force events for each generation. Add Jones to the list of black female writers whose prose has a lyrical, mystical touch. Maurice Taylor, Brunswick Cty. Lib., Southport, N.C.
