Rose of Sharon had cried out to the man on the boat, tried to warn him the night he was shot for fishing where he wasn't welcome. Then she retreated into silence--and guilt. Rose might have kept quiet if it hadn't been for Lily, the outsider whose infidelities titillated Prince George County.

For both women knew that a man was killed in Prince George County for the color of his skin--and the time for change had come.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
