290 pp, large 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. "With power and originality that sear the mind as they break the heart, Linda Beatrice Brown has written a deeply affecting novel about the hidden inheritance of slavery. From the waning of the Civil W ar to the early twenty-first century, 'Crossing Over Jordan' tells of the haunting drama that slavery sets in motion. It passes from one generation of women to another, until it finally explodes in the conflict between a mother and daughter caught in a vortex of torment, loss, and denial." Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling and light rubbing. NF/VG
