Then she upset all those plans when she fell in love. It was 1942 and Robert Metcalf was a member of the first black unit in the Army Air Corps, stationed at Tuskegee, Alabama.
For the first time, she left her sheltered life in Atlanta to marry Rob. For the first time, she had to learn what it really meant to be a black woman in 20th-century America.
During the decades that followed, Ann Elizabeth's life, and her marriage, were shaped by the changes that shook the country, that redefined it. During those decades, she learned the truth of a lifetime. You have to guard the love you find, and overcome the hate that finds you.

"Optimistic, lightly humorous, and filled with an abundance of appealing characters, this is a well-crafted, compelling romance that does not gloss over the realities of prejudice." (Library Journal)
This book had great appeal initially, but developed into a trite and predictable story. The abridged version was choppy, particularly at the end when you realize that the daughter goes from elementary school to Stanford in 1 chapter.
I would not recommend this one.
