As the narrative unfolds, the struggles of those residing on the fringes of mainstream society come to light, showcasing the resilience required for survival.

Through the revelations of the past and the complicity of the town’s white establishment, the author, McBride, underscores the enduring power of love and community even in the bleakest of times.
