An unflinching historical novel that looks at the legacy of Jim Crow in Texas. It's the story of Ivoe Williams, the precocious daughter of a Muslim cook and a metalsmith from central-east Texas, and her ambition to start the country's first female-run African American newspaper. Barnett's book brings to mind the work of Alice Walker and Toni Morrison.
