Out Of The Night That Covers Me, Paperback / softback Book

Out Of The Night That Covers Me Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


John McMillan was only eight years old when his mother died and he was ripped, without warning, from his sheltered world of books and gentility.

Now on his aunt's run-down tenant farm in southern Alabama, abused by his alcholic uncle and completely bereft, John longs for escape - his only hope for survival.

He's about to get his wish in a way no one could ever predict...A twist of fate will bring John to the Bend, a black settlement that has become a refuge for outcasts, where he'll join Tuway, a black man who helps others leave the South and find a new life in Chicago.

But neither will be ready for the brutal confrontation about to change their lives, challenge the prejudice of an era, inspire the courage of a people, and most of all, touchingly reveal the secrets of one boy's heart.
