A stunning tour de force following three fierce,
unforgettable Southern women in the years leading up to the
Itâ€™s 1924 South Carolina and the region is still recovering
from the infamous boll weevil infestation that devastated
the land and the economy. Gertrude, a mother of four, must
make an unconscionable decision to save her daughters from
starvation or die at the hands of an abusive husband. Retta
is navigating a harsh world as a first-generation freed
slave, still employed by the Coles, influential plantation
proprietors who once owned her family. Annie is the
matriarch of the Coles family and must come to terms with
the terrible truth that has ripped her family apart.
These three women seemingly have nothing in common, yet as
they unite to stand up to the terrible injustices that have
long plagued the small town, they find strength in the bond
that ties women together. Told in the pitch-perfect voices
of Gertrude, Retta and Annie, Call Your Daughter Home is an
audacious, timeless story about the power of family,
deep-buried secrets and the ferocity of motherhood.
