"In a story of compassion and grace, a black tenant farmer in Georgia follows a harrowing destiny. Despondent over the futility of life in the South, George Copeland leaves his wife and son in Georgia to head North. After meeting an equally humiliating experience there, he returns to Georgia years later, to find his son, Brownfield, imprisoned for the murder of his wife. As the guardian of the couple's youngest daughter, George Copeland faces a third--and final--chance to free himself from spiritual and social enslavement."--Publisher description on outside of the back cover.
