Seventeen years ago, Sepha Stephanos fled the Ethiopian
Revolution for a new start in the United States. Now he finds himself running a
failing grocery store in a poor African-American section of Washington, DC, his
only companions two fellow African immigrants who share his bitter nostalgia
and longing for his home continent.
Years ago and worlds away Sepha could never

white woman and her biracial daughter. But when a series of racial incidents
disturbs the community, Sepha may lose everything all over again. Download and start listening now!
