The golden years are tarnished for Corinthia Pearl Jacobs, a proud Daughter of the Confederacy, and Ada Passmore, a Civil Rights activist from the North. Both Cori and Ada have strong constitutions shaped by their respective past experiences and environments. When circumstances force them to share a home, they are soon forced to confront the prevalent racial, social, economic, political, and religious challenges posed by society.
Defying ageism, challenging contemporary parental methods, and confronting social injustice, these women probe the deep roots of the problems they face and examine how differing perspectives have the power to form solutions. Their electrifying pasts collide with their shared present when their relationship faces its greatest challenge—the 2008 election.
Will things ever be the same?
