This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized marriage between the races, and this unique novel, based on true events, brings the story to life for a new generation of young adults. As Adenrele Ojo and MacLeod Andrews give voice to Millie and Richard Loving in sparse but powerful verse, the listener is immersed in a world of prejudice and segregation, which they overcome by their love for each other. We follow their journey as they search for a way to live their lives and raise their children together. Both narrators inhabit their characters with empathy and grit. Listeners hear the love Millie and Richard maintain for each other in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, join in their frustration at the slow pace of justice, and rejoice at their final triumph.
