Publisher's Summary

Eleven-year-old Raisin enjoys doing odd jobs for old Ms. Effie Pfluggins. Ms. Effie is the church secretary, and she has fascinating stories to tell about the African American history and people of Gumbo Grove. When old Miss Pfluggins asks her to help clean up the church cemetery, Raisin discovers a real-life mystery that no one wants to talk about. There’s a famous person buried in a forgotten plot, but the townsfolk seem to think that the past is better left buried. Now Raisin’s parents are watching her every move and they don’t want her nosing around in the cemetery anymore. How can she ignore a mystery that the whole town seems eager to forget?

Eleanora E. Tate blends mystery, warmth, and humor into an unforgettable tale set in a small North Carolina town. Children of any age or race will identify with this spirited African-American girl who values truth and stands up for her beliefs.
