Summary
In the aftermath of a devastating tornado that rips through the town of Tupelo, Mississippi, at the height of the Great Depression, two women worlds apart, one black, one white; one a great-grandmother, the other a teenager; fight for their families' survival in this lyrical and powerful novel. "Gwin's gift shines in the complexity of her characters and their fraught relationships with each other, their capacity for courage and hope, coupled with their passion for justice.--"Promise reminds us of the transformative power and promise that come from confronting our most troubled relations with one another
