Eula is a southern woman who has endured many cries. She has faced much abuse from others and her very own mother Erma Jean throughout her life. Thanks to Erma Jean’s longtime, lost, and forgotten cousin, Haddie Mae “Hazel,” Erma Jean’s closet bones are now exposed and has stirred up chaos between Erma Jean, her husband Walter, and the small town Gainesville. Eula realizes she has only one hope, her childhood dream of becoming an attorney to escape the harsh realities of growing up in Gainesville, Alabama. Only to encounter more enduring cries, especially after she marries her college sweetheart Dr. Cornelius Parks. However, with her unshakable faith in God, Eula is empowered to move mountains to accomplish her dream.
