Summary
Self-educated and brown-skinned, Cassie works full time in her grandmother's laundry in rural Mississippi. Illiterate and white, Judith falls for colored music and dreams of life as a big city radio star. These teenaged girls are half-sisters. And when they catch wind of their wayward father's inheritance coming down in Virginia, they hitch their hopes to a road trip together to claim what's rightly theirs
Summary
Two half-sisters--one self-educated and black, the other illiterate and white--learn of their wayward father's inheritance and embark on a risky road trip together through the 1950s Jim Crow South in the hopes of claiming what is rightfully theirs
