An epic tale of fearless love, family secrets, deadly obsessions! Perfect for avid readers and book clubs.

Addie Mayfield. On one autumn night in 1949, Addie falls for the irresistible red curls and vibrant green eyes of a young man from the other side of the railroad tracks. Neither knowing that the consequences of their love would have lasting effects.

Timmy Taylor. Known as one of the greatest white jazz pianists in New York, Timmy never had a reason to question his identity - until truth and betrayal strike. Will Timmy be able to push past the pain?

Nina Taylor. Beautiful and talented, Nina Taylor inherited her father's talent, but not his white skin. Certain that's how he made it big, she dives deep into a deadly obsession. Will Nina learn to love the skin she's in before it's too late?

Get immersed in a heart-pounding story of building hope, finding love, and embracing your true identity, that spans across four generations and three states--Georgia, Chicago, and New York.

Wow! Great book! Millie (married a half black half white guy) gave birth to Addie (falls in love with a white guy)who gave birth to Timmy (falls in love with a black woman) who fathered Nina (hated the black skin she was in). Four generations. Four different eras. Four views of race and self worth. This is a book that stays with you long after the last page is read. I definitely recommend this book!!!! It is on my favorites list.
