Summary
Rachel Fleischer has good reasons not to be at her fathers deathbed. Foaling season is at hand and her horses are becoming restless and difficult. Her critical mother and grasping sister could certainly handle Marty Fleishers resistance better without her. But Malachi, her eighty-something horse managermore father to her than Marty has ever beenconvinces Rachel she will regret it if she doesnt go. When a stranger at her fathers funeral delivers an odd gift and an apology, Rachel finds herself drawn into the epic story of her fathers World War II experience, and the friendships, trauma, scandal, and betrayals that would scar the rest of his lifeand cast a shadow across the entire family. As she struggles to make sense of his time as a Jewish sergeant in charge of a platoon of black soldiers in 1940s Alabama, she learns more than just his history. She begins to see how his hopes and disappointments mirror her ownand might finally give her the means to free herself of the past and choose a life waiting in the wings.“Prepare for Singer to keep you up all night ricocheting between a present day horse farm, family traumas, and the unthinkable racism in the military during WWII. The long arm of war travels through generations in this emotional drama
