Summary: -- âA triumph of historical fictionâ (The Washington Post 1950s Philadelphia: fifteen-year-old Ruby Pearsall is on track to becoming the first in her family to attend college, in spite of having a mother more interested in keeping a man than raising a daughter. But a taboo love affair threatens to pull her back down into the poverty and desperation that has been passed on to her like a birthright. Eleanor Quarles arrives in Washington, DC, with ambition and secrets. When she meets the handsome William Pride at Howard University, they fall madly in love. But William hails from one of DCâs elite wealthy Black families, and his par­ents donât let just anyone into their fold. Eleanor hopes that a baby will make her finally feel at home in Williamâs family and grant her the life sheâs been searching for. But having a babyâand fitting inâis easier said than done. With their stories colliding in the most unexpected of ways, Ruby and Eleanor will both make decisions that shape the trajectory of their lives.
