Description

Mimosa Lane, a destroyed Georgian plantation, lives only in memory for young Rachel. Three generations of family misfortunes leave the girl in poverty on the hard-luck streets of Tulsa. When Rachel encounters an old, black woman, once enslaved by her grandmother, life teeters on the brink of despair. Forced by her stepfather to marry a crusty, backwoods moonshiner, Rachel escapes a rundown cabin in the isolated hills, but finds escaping her past more challenging. Finding refuge at a seemingly peaceful farm, she meets three brothers--each with the potential to provide Rachel a happiness she thought lost. The conflicts of her past lead Rachel into the real-life drama of the Tulsa race riots of 1921. Set against the backdrop of Tulsa's rise from a rowdy town in Indian Territory to the sophisticated Oil Capital of the World, Rachel learns life-changing influences come from unlikely places, and discovers tomorrow is rooted in today.
