Publisher's Summary

Jeremy Simms watches from the porch of the general store as the passengers board the weekly bus from Jackson. When several white passengers arrive late, the driver roughly orders the black passengers off to make room. Then, in the driving rain, disaster strikes, and Jeremy witnesses a shocking end to the day's drama. Set in Mississippi in the 1930s, this is a gripping story of racial injustice.

Thought provoking excellent story telling at its best

I absolutely loved this short story. I could actually envision myself being there as the story is been told. The reader is excellent and you get a clear picture of what everybody is feeling what they look like how certain situations are. I recommend this book to anyone. Fantastic story writing of a history not that long ago while listening to the story I was saddened by the treatment that whites had blacks and you are warmed to the main character with whom the story is told from. A very sad story of many I guess that happened around that time. Racism is so ugly and telling this story is needed, to teach us so we can be a nicer and treat each other as equals. Loved this! Very thought provoking and I was gripped bravo! X
