Robin Miles shines in this compelling story about family, culture, and justice. The story is set in Boston against the backdrop of the 1974 protests against public school integration. Mary Pat Fennessy has lived in the Southie housing projects all her life. One summer night, her daughter Jules doesn't come home, and a young Black man is killed. As Mary Pat asks questions--and closes in on what happened--she begins to rethink everything she's been told about what separates us and what brings us together. Miles captures the dialect of the community, as well as Mary Pat's desperation and determination. A word of caution: The language and racial slurs used match the historical context of the story but can be difficult to listen to. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
