This saga of love, land and loss is told from the disparate perspectives of Ruth Thatcher, who is Black, and Jonas Thatcher, who is White, and spans nearly a century. During the course of their lifetimes, Ruth and Jonas-- and their respective families have prospered-- but it is left for their descendants to come to grips with the long-unacknowledged truth that the two families are actually one.
