Eighty-nine-year-old Isabelle McAllister has a big favor to ask her hairdresser, Dorrie. She wants the black single mother to drop everything and drive her from Texas to a funeral in Ohio - tomorrow. Dorrie, fleeing problems of her own and curious about Isabelle's past, agrees, not knowing it will be a journey that changes both their lives.

Isabelle confesses that, as a teen in 1930s Kentucky, she fell in love with Robert Prewitt, a would-be doctor and the black son of her family's housekeeper - in a town where blacks weren't allowed after dark. The tale of their forbidden relationship and its tragic consequences just might help Dorrie find her own way.

    " Interracial relationship, with all the ups and downs. An unusual friendship between two women. Story lines in the past and present. Excellent character studies. My kind of book! "

    " Enjoyed this book more since the characters lived in my hometown in Texas - and the author is from here as well. It was somewhat slow going at first and the plot fairly predictable. The last few chapters of the book were quite rewarding as we finally learned what happened after Isabelle moved to Texas. I found myself teary-eyed at the emotional ending. All in all, 3.5 stars. "
