Eleanor arrives in Washington, D.C., with ambition and secrets. She meets William Pride at Howard University, and they fall in love. However, William’s wealthy Black family does not let just anyone into their fold. Ruby is a high school student growing up poor in Philadelphia who dreams of going to optometry college. When she meets a white Jewish boy, her future threatens to spill away from her grasp.

“A unique story of motherhood that follows two Black women in 1950s Philadelphia and how their lives become intertwined in a brilliant exploration of the struggles for young Black women in the mid-20th century.”

The Book Guide® Editor

The chapters alternate between telling the story of Ruby and Eleanor. The book explores issues such as racism, colorism, classism, motherhood, and forbidden love. The parallel stories of the two women highlight the contaminating effect of racism across generations. It is an affecting and arresting exploration of young Black womanhood and motherhood in the past century.
