About the Book

In the follow up to her popular novel CROSSING THE LINE, Laura Castoro continues to tackle the difficult and universal issues surrounding race and family in these modern times, in the deeply emotional journey of a mother and daughter trying to find their place in the world

Thea Morgan—no, Thornton—is thrilled about starting life with her new husband Xavier, After so many years apart, it was truly a blessing that they found each other again. But the new life is going to take some adjustment. Used to being high-powered businesswoman, Thea is having difficulty balancing that with her new role as the preacher’s wife. And the townspeople in Xavier new parish are watching her life a hawk. With her corporate job and light skin, Thea will have to go far to prove to the people of St. Hurrican AME Church that she can be who she is and still be one of them.

Jesse, Thea’s daughter, is having an identity crisis of her own. Off at college and away from those who’ve known her her entire life, Jesse has the chance to reinvent herself. But is it a chance worth taking? The child of a light-skinned black woman and a white man, Jesse has blond hair and blue eyes. No one would know her heritage if she didn’t tell them, leaving Jesse to face a difficult realization: is she forging a new path in life, free of any preconceived notions? Or is she hiding her identity and denying her roots?
