When Frank Money joined the army to escape
his too-small world, he left behind his cherished and fragile little
sister, Cee. After the war, his shattered life has no purpose until he
hears that Cee is in danger.
Frank is a modern Odysseus returning to a 1950s America mined with
lethal pitfalls for an unwary black man. As he journeys to his native
Georgia in search of Cee, it becomes clear that their troubles began
well before their wartime separation. Together, they return to their
rural hometown of Lotus, where buried secrets are unearthed and where
Frank learns at last what it means to be a man, what it takes to heal,
and--above all--what it means to come home.
