A basketball star, Brick has the chance to escape his abusive father and become the first person in his blue-collar family to attend college.

The evolution of women’s lives spanning the second half of the twentieth century is at the center of this beautiful novel that richly portrays how much people know—and pretend not to know—about the secrets at the heart of a town, and a family.
Great Read! Took me back to my roots and reminded me of the many strong women in my family. Thanks Connie.
I read it in two days because I didn’t want it to leave my hands. The seamless evolution of these woman had me in tears and laughter. The description of the news of John F. Kennedy’s assassination in the classroom gripped me and brought back memories of how I heard the news. I could relate to these women on many levels making this a must read.
