Description

The B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree for Literary Fiction, 2017 Illumination Book Award Winner, and Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Finalist
The last thing Hosanna wants is a bucket, a dishrag, and a brush. After all, it's been fifteen years.

Her heart and knees have grown callous from years of scrubbing floors for her racist grandmother who's disgusted over the unlawful deeds of Hosanna's white mother and black father.

But Hosanna is now tired. Tired of her grandmother who has cloaked the family's shame for far too long. So tired, she has waxed in wrath, counted every injustice, and rebelled against all who obstruct her quest for truth.

So will she ever find peace?

This award-winning story transcends time and takes us from the racial animus of 1945 to the abiding power of grace that heals and binds divisive wounds.
