The 1997 Blackboard African American Bestseller's Book of the Year
Born into a comfortable Washington, D.C. home, Naomi Jefferson leads a life that is only occasionally marred by racism. But all that changes when her older brother Joshua--who seems destined for greatness--is killed in a tragic car accident on his way to a civil rights demonstration. Naomi begins a search for love and purpose in a harsh, often unforgiving world.
