Jeannie Mobley is my go-to author for historical fiction. She has a way of weaving all sorts of captivating tidbits in her books—this time about the 1920s and the Great Migration, Jim Crow laws, train travel, jazz, and so much more. Even better, the author’s notes at the end of the book invites the reader to peek inside the author’s mind and learn what inspired her to write this tale. Absolutely fascinating. And bonus points to the publisher for adding a map at the beginning. I do so love maps. But it was the characters that made this book. I was holding my breath the entire book, hoping Bobby Lee could become the person I wanted him to be. In the end, did he? I won’t give away the plot – you must read the book yourself. This is Jeannie Mobley’s finest work to date. I highly recommend it.
