This novel is set in Birmingham, Alabama, a city that in the 1960s was known as Bombingham. This tumultuous time is brought back to life, weaving together the lives of blacks and whites, civil rights advocates and racists, and the events of peaceful protest and violent repression, to create a tapestry of American social transformation. Stella Silver is an idealistic, young white college student brought up by her genteel, mannered aunts. She first witnesses the events of the freedom movement from a safe distance but, along with her friend Cat Cartwright, is soon drawn into the mounting conflagration. Stella's and Cat's lives are forever altered by their new friendships with other committed freedom fighters. A student at a black college, Christine Taylor, is inspired to action by the examples of Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth.
