This luminous and assured first novel shines an unflinching, compassionate light on three generations of a black family in New Orleans, emphasizing endurance more than damage. TheNew York Times Book Review, Editors' Choice

Evelyn is a Creole woman who comes of age in New Orleans at the height of World War II. Her family inhabits the upper echelon of Black society, and when she falls for no-account Renard, she is forced to choose between her life of privilege and the man she loves.

In 1982, Evelyns daughter, Jackie, is a frazzled single mother grappling with her absent husbands drug addiction. Just as she comes to terms with his abandoning the family, he returns, ready to resume their old life.

Jackies son, T.C., loves the creative process of growing marijuana more than the weed itself. He was a square before Hurricane Katrina, but the New Orleans he knew didn't survive the storm. Fresh out of a four-month stint for drug charges, T.C. decides to start overuntil an old friend convinces him to stake his new beginning on one last deal.

For Evelyn, Jim Crow is an ongoing reality, and in its wake new threats spring up to haunt her descendants.A Kind of Freedomis an urgent novel that explores the legacy of racial disparity in the South through a poignant and redemptive family history.
