As the nation enters the chaotic sixties era, the Mackey
family is attempting to put their tumultuous past behind
them. Somehow they have managed to endure divorce, racism,
death, and puberty. Ethel, their black maid and heart and
soul of the family, is the childrenâ€™s only constant.
Unfortunately, she is fighting her own demons as well.
Twelve-year-old Sallee Mackey is struggling to understand
the world with little enlightenment from the adults around
her. Her father, who is reveling in newfound wealth, has a
new love. Still, he yearns for simpler times. Her mother is
overwhelmed with single motherhood, feelings of abandonment,
and her battle with alcoholism. Salleeâ€™s brother, Gordy, is
battling anger and hatred that is bubbling to the surface
with the harsh realities of his life.
Her older sister, Stuart, has finally escaped the family
drama to attend college in New York, only to realize the
temptations of urban life. But as each Mackey grapples with
separate trials, the world is instantly transformed with a
single gunshot in Dallas.
In this continuing historical saga, a family living in the
South during the mid-twentieth century must find a way to
overcome obstacles as life continues to challenge each of them.
