From Library Journal
Spanning almost 60 years of American history, Rutland's debut family saga chronicles the lives of privileged Ann Elizabeth Carter and Army Air Corps pilot Robert Metcalf--their romance, their struggles, and their ultimate happiness--as it sweeps its characters from the genteel, segregated world of Atlanta's black elite through the rough realities of war, prejudice, and civil rights activism and into the present. Optimistic, lightly humorous, and filled with an abundance of appealing characters, this is a well-crafted, compelling romance that does not gloss over the realities of prejudice, making for sometimes uncomfortable, but eye-opening, reading. It will have appeal far beyond the African American readership and would be a welcome addition to most romance and general women's fiction collections. Rutland is a veteran writer of series romance and lives in Sacramento, CA.
