Description Information

When the author asked about the framed photo of a white man in her mother’s bedroom, she discovered her grandfather was John Robert Jones of Harrisonburg, a retired brigadier general in the Confederate Army. Her grandmother, Malinda Rice of Singer's Glen, Virginia, was a freed slave and his servant. The story is a loving remembrance of her beautiful and determined mother who spent her life breaking down barriers to equality, overcoming scandal to leave a legacy of courage, conviction, and joy. The result is one black woman’s slow acceptance of her white grandfather and his legacy to her.
