Continues the adventures of Sarny, the slave girl Nightjohn taught to read, through the aftermath of the Civil War during which time she taught other Blacks and lived a full life until age ninety-four. In this companion novel to the acclaimed "Nightjohn, " Sammy, the young slave girl who learned to read in "Nightjohn, " is now a young widow. She flees the plantation in the last days of the Civil War, a free woman in search of her sold-away children. Sarny's story gives a panoramic view of America in a time of tragedy, trial, and hoped-for change, until her last days in the 1930s.
