This long-awaited follow-up to Page from a Tennessee Journal springs forward to 1930 and travels between Illinois and Tennessee.   Questions pummel the White farmer. The disappearance of the Black woman he loves, and their new-born daughter, dip every moment of the past sixteen years in a misery so deep he ignores the wife he has betrayed.  His lethargy is shaken loose by dry wells, deep-in-the-woods juke joints, rifle-toting in-laws determined to “teach them coloreds a lesson”, and two surprising reunions, all lead to startling outcomes.
