Following her National Book Award–nominated debut novel, A Kind of Freedom, Margaret Wilkerson Sexton returns with this equally elegant and historically inspired story of survivors and healers, of black women and their black sons, set in the American South.

 

 

 

 

"This luminous
and assured first novel
shines an unflinching,
compassionate light on
three generations of a
black family in New Orleans,
emphasizing endurance
more than damage."
