Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrators Lynette Freeman and Tracey Lee bring compassion and understanding to characters who are struggling to survive in segregated America. The novel weaves two plots, one set in the 1920s and the other in the 1960s. Freeman and Lee perform the vibrant characters with distinctive tones, pacing, and verve. A painful incident kept secret for years takes Daisy and Henrietta on an emotional journey, aided by Henrietta’s daughter, Frankie. Historic places like the Hotel Sommerville in Los Angeles and real people like W.E.B. Du Bois and others add verisimilitude. Freeman and Lee capture the frustrations of segregation and the hope that develops as race relations gradually improve. R.O. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
