Ivoe Williams is one of the most driven characters you'll ever rmeet. As a journalist and newspaperwoman in the time of Jim Crow, she has to be. Her struggles, achievements, and loves come about in a pervading atmosphere of oppression that is catastrophic and banal. But Ivoe's story is is also about incredible strength and joy, animated by vibrant prose and a truly rewarding depth of historical detail that lifts up the work of early African American newspapers. A wonderful, compelling novel.
