It's 1912. America is the land of Jim Crow, of lynchings and segregation. And a young white concert pianist has just discovered that the grandfather she barely knows may be black. She has a family. She has a child. She can't be black, because her brothers and sisters and son can't be. She can't be black, because she couldn't play the piano in America. She follows her grandfather onto the newest, safest, biggest ship in the world, to learn the truth--the right truth, the one that will save her family. But after the iceberg, she finds the truth is more complicated than black and white. More daring, more loving, and far more dangerous. And instead of a convenient truth, what she'll have to find is a different America.
