A multi-generational family saga examining social privilege and personal limitations.

I loved Sarah Blake from The Postmistress, but this book is more than just historical fiction about three generations of one family. It's about the power of privilege, politics,  and race. And it explores what it means to be a good person, including "the everyday wickedness of turning away" told through an evocatively sensuous writing style and deeply personal characters. This is one of my must-reads of 2019.
