A talented team of narrators transports listeners to Mississippi, 1964, a world of segregation, violence, and the fight to secure Black people the right to vote. Sisters Violet and Marigold Richards, portrayed by Janina Edwards and Shayna Small, are both fleeing north--Violet from a possible murder charge and Marigold from an out-of-wedlock pregnancy. What both want is a better life away from the unrest, racism, and personal loss they experienced in their hometown. Edwards and Small create authentic characters with equal parts passion and desperation. Adam Lazarre-White voices Mercer Buggs, who is hired to find Violet. Part family drama, part mystery, this audiobook reminds listeners what has changed since the 1960s and how much work is still left to be done.
