It is 1913, shortly before the start of the First World War, and Annalaura is alone again. Her gambling, womanizing husband has left the plot they sharecrop in rural Tennessee—why or for how long she does not know. Without food or money and with her future tied to the fate of the season’s tobacco crop, Annalaura struggles to raise her four children. When help comes in the form of an amorous landowner, who is she to turn it—and him—away? 

In this remarkable first novel, as bracingly original as it is exquisitely rendered, Francine Howard tells a moving story of American desire and ambition and the tragic, slippery boundaries of race under Jim Crow.

    " Well told story of black sharecropper (Annalaura)apparently abandoned and left with 4 children by husband (John Welles). In struggle for survival she ends in affair with white landowner (Alex McNaughton). Mutual affection follows as does baby. In the end Annalaura has to choose between John who returns to her and Alex. Point of book, I think, is not choice she makes as we do not know that but rather the power she has to make the choice. "
