"Intriguing…A thoughtful, intelligent work…The novel traces the yeasr from he ’50s to the ate ’80s, from Eisenhower to George Bush….She writes with simple eloquence about small-town life in the South, right after the start of the great social upheaval of he civil rights movement….Campbell has a strong creative voice."
Chicago-born Amrstrong Tood is fifteen, black, and unused to the ways of the segregated Deep South, when his mother sends him to spend the summer with relatives in rural Mississippi. For speaking a few innocuous words in French to a white woman, Armstrong is killed. And the precariously balanced world and its determined people—white and black—are changed, then and forever, by the horror of poverty, the legacy of justice, and the singular gift of love’s power to heal.
