Meet the Authors
Call Your Daughter Home - A cinematic tour de force about three Southern women united against the gender politics, race issues, and class divide that have long plagued their rural town.
Three unforgettable heroes—Retta, a first-generation freed slave navigating a Reconstruction-era world; Annie, the matriarch of a wealthy but broken family; and Gertrude, a mother who must make an unconscionable decision to save her daughters from starvation or die at the hands of an abusive husband—are expected to have nothing in common but share the burden of buried secrets, the sheer will to survive, and the ferocity of motherhood.
