From the critically acclaimed writer of A Different Sun, a
Southern coming-of-age novel that sets three very different
young people against the tumultuous years of the American
civil rights movement...
Tacker Hart left his home in North Carolina as a local high
school football hero, but returns in disgrace after being
fired from a prestigious architectural assignment in West
Africa. Yet the culture and people he grew to admire have
left their mark on him. Adrift, he manages his father's
grocery store and becomes reacquainted with a girl he barely
knew growing up.
Kate Monroe's parents have died, leaving her the family home
and the right connections in her Southern town. But a trove
of disturbing letters sends her searching for the truth
behind the comfortable life she's been bequeathed.
On the same morning but at different moments, Tacker and
Kate encounter a young African-American, Gaines Townson, and
their stories converge with his. As Winston-Salem is pulled
into the tumultuous 1960s, these three Americans find
themselves at the center of the civil rights struggle,
coming to terms with the legacies of their pasts as they
search for an ennobling future.
