In 1925, Mercy, a black ex-prostitute, dumped like yesterday’s trash, is taken in by the bravest, boldest woman she’s ever met. What’s in store for her, finding hope and courage with LillieBeth Hazkit or more rejection? When Bald Knobbers bent on keeping their mountains for whites only, visit them, Mercy wants to run, but there isn’t anywhere to go. LillieBeth, with true Hazkit style, refusing to yield or bend, they confront the evil together.
Can Mercy learn to live with Leota Wikoff at the Hazkit’s, no less racist than the Bald Knobbers willing to lynch her? Can she learn farm life or will she be a burden to the young woman who rescued her? Can a small jasper stone give Mercy the courage to be strong?
