Only child Molly Langford is raised alongside the son of her father’s black foreman, falls in love with him, and after his brutal death realizes she is pregnant with his child. Though her parents try to talk her into giving the child away, Molly refuses, committed not to give sway to the racial bias of the era.When damaged WWI veteran John Carroll comes to work on the farm, Molly loves him despite his facial scars and they marry and have two children together. Despite the fact that John adopts her son, now that biracial child presents challenges for everyone, at every turn.Molly is a novel that spans two decades in the lives of a family struggling to raise a biracial child in the midst of a racist culture and community. It’s the first of three books that follow the lives of the Langford and Carroll families over a period of thirty years, but it is a standalone novel.This novel is as timely in our current day as it would have been before John F. Kennedy insisted on equality for all despite the color of their skin. A story that showcases the inner strength available by persons of strong moral fiber, it will engage readers in the journey like long-lost cousins.
