Took me back to the Civil Rights era.

This book rang true on so many levels. As a northern civil rights activist in the 60's and now as a resident of Florida, I was drawn into this book completely.

I loved the way alternate chapters told the stories of these two remarkable women.

The narrator was excellent.
