"Unfolding in Georgia, North Carolina, and Manhattan and covering several different time periods, this story of lost souls was a delightful accompaniment for a train trip between those points. Narrator George Newbern eloquently captures the heartache of Bobby, the gay son of a Southern minister. Robin Miles lends a dignified air to Alice, who grew up in a freed slave community. Katherine Powell, as Amelia, offers the lone non-Southern voice. Ultimately, all migrate to the Big Apple in search of a past, a present, and a future. Meeting in a legendary cafŽ, the trio bonds in the kitchen, but their connections prove to be surprisingly deep-rooted. Interweaving gender, racial, and religious themes, this beautifully narrated story culminates in Alice, Amelia, and Bobby learning to embrace and celebrate their true selves.
