What others are saying about


“Take Annie, a fresh college grad from a traditional middle-class white family in Pittsburgh, stir together with Thomas, a handsome black man with baggage who’s hell bent for theater success, turn them out in New York City awash in weltschmertz, drugs and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, add a rich white sugar-lady who’s been paying Thomas’ bills in exchange for boudoir duty, sprinkle with innocent love and naked ambition, and you have a gripping novel served up by Margaret Murray. Brimming with truths of the heart and spirit, here's a unique coming-of-age love story you won’t want to miss. ”—Naida West, author,

Issues complicate and twist their relationship many different ways on many paths until one lone road unfolds.” — John M. Brewer, author of African Americans in Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Jazz and The Room
