(From the publisher):
When Anne Russell's father is killed in a work-related accident in the late 1960s, she and her five siblings battle poverty and racial strife in their hometown of Memphis. Just sixteen years old, Anne lands a job at the local newspaper and copes as best she can with her siblings' problems: everything from epilepsy to abortions to bad attitudes.
In the years to come, Anne's romance with the newspaper's owner leads to pregnancy and marriage, and Anne herself begins to embody the proud, indefatigable spirit of those who would succeed in changing the world. Still, many challenges lie ahead for Anne and the Russell family...and for a nation striving toward equality.
