Summary, etc.: A writer discovers a secret that throws her family and their small southern town into turmoil Raised in the waning days of the Jim Crow South, Grace Truscott has a unique perspective on race. Her father was a senator from Georgia whose liberalism sparked controversy during  the civil rights movement, and who after his death becomes a hero in their small hometown. When she begins writing his biography, no one in her family expects anything surprising to come of it. But Grace knows the dead senator's secret.   She was there that long ago day when Ned Emory came to her father's office with a gun. The black man had learned of the senator's ongoing affair with his wife, and he had come to kill. But Emory took the bullet instead. The town goes into uproar when Grace reveals the truth. And as she quickly learns, it is only the first secret to be revealed.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
