The town of Money, Mississippi, is famous as the place where Emmett Till was brutally murdered in 1955. Bernice McFadden’s absorbing, unforgettable novel blends history and fantasy to tell the story of the Hilson family. You’ll meet the Rev. August Hilson, who moved the family in Money at the turn of the 20th-century…Doll, the love of August’s life, who was almost too much for him to handle…Hemmingway, their long-lived daughter, who witnessed the town’s many changes, for better and for worse…and Tass, who was Emmett Till’s lover until his tragic death. Tass fled to Detroit on the arm of her new husband, Maximillian May. Now, 40 years later, she returns to Money to find that some ghosts literally won’t stay buried.
