- Book Description:
Southern civility turns savage when Hank Whitaker’s dying words reveal the unimaginable. No one—not his socialite wife, Maggie, or young son, Lance—ever suspected the successful businessman, husband and father they knew and loved was a Black man passing for white. In 1931, in the segregated South, marriage between whites and Blacks is illegal. Maggie is now a criminal facing the real possibility of jail and, when Lance receives death threats to atone for his father’s betrayal, the family flees the U.S. for Paris.
