You can never go home again. . . Lu Conners wonders why she would want to. Home to her conjures up memories of a poverty stricken childhood on a dirt-farm in Florida, the death of her mother, an embittered and closed-off father, and the cutting slights of being called racial slurs. Was it any wonder that when she won a scholarship for college in the north she never looked back? Now with teenaged children, a successful career and a business-owner husband, the last thing she wants to do is attend to her newly deceased father's affairs. Neither is she anxious to deal with her hostile brother or face those figures from her childhood who could feel nothing but betrayal after her long absence. The journey home unexpectedly becomes more than a facing of bad memories. To her surprise she finds it to be a journey of renewal as secrets are revealed, sacrifices are discovered, and a newfound pride in her family and roots is instilled to be treasured and passed down to the next generation.
