by | Read by Kevin Kenerly, Bahni Turpin, Adenrele Ojo

Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The author presents history as it was lived by three generations of a New Orleans family. Narrator Bahni Turpin lays the foundation for the audiobook as Evelyn, whose story takes place in the 1940s. Setting a high bar, Turpin gives life to Evelyn's sister, parents, and beau in scenes that take place in the kitchen and on the porch. Adenrele Ojo captures the plight of Evelyn's daughter, Jackie, who faces single motherhood in the 1980s. Kevin Kenerly embodies T.C., Jackie's son, in post-Katrina New Orleans. With scenes that include segregation and incarceration, Sexton and her narrators keep this family saga moving from hope to heartache, and back again.
