Tish and Fonny have pledged to get married, but Fonny is falsely accused of a terrible crime and is imprisoned. Their families set out to clear his name, and as they face an uncertain future, the young lovers experience a kaleidoscope of emotions - affection, despair, and hope.
In a love story that evokes the blues, where passion and sadness are inevitably intertwined, Baldwin has created two characters so alive and profoundly realized that they are unforgettably ingrained in the American psyche.

The narrator did her thing, I love it!!!
This book is a mirror of my life. From jail, their ages, their families, the charges, the innocence, to the mother venturing out and seeking truth. I am with my husband this very day 23 years later. I know this kind of love, Mr. Baldwin nailed it. Well done.

The narration captures the range of voices and adopts throughout the personas of Baldwin’s female characters. Such a tender story delivered tenderly, yet Baldwin’s poetic depictions of daily violence, subjugation, hunger, wariness, fear are not drowned by the protagonist’s sweetness. Baldwin drives us into his world view and sculpts a girl-woman in words.
