"From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours comes a new novel inspired by little-known historical events: a dramatic story of three young women on a journey in search of family amidst the destruction of the post-Civil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who rediscovers their story and its vital connection to her own students' lives. In her distinctive voice, Lisa Wingate brings to life startling stories from actual "Lost Friends" advertisements that appeared in Southern newspapers after the Civil War, as freed slaves desperately searched for loved ones who had been sold off. Louisiana, 1875: In the tumultuous aftermath of Reconstruction, three young women set off as unwilling companions on a perilous quest: Lavinia, the pampered heir to a now-destitute plantation; Juneau Jane, her illegitimate free-born Creole half-sister; and Hannie, Lavinia's former slave. Each carries private wounds and powerful secrets as they head for Texas, following dangerous roads rife with ruthless vigilantes and soldiers still fighting a war lost a decade before. For Lavinia and Juneau Jane, the journey is one of inheritance and financial desperation, but for Hannie, torn from her mother and eight siblings before slavery's end, the pilgrimage westward reignites an agonizing question: Could her long-lost family still be out there? Beyond the swamps lie the seemingly limitless frontiers of Texas and, improbably, hope. Louisiana, 1987: For first-year teacher Benedetta Silva, a subsidized job at a poor rural school seems like the ticket to canceling her hefty student debt--until she lands in a tiny, out-of-step Mississippi River town. Augustine, Louisiana, seems suspicious of new ideas and new people, and Benny can scarcely comprehend the lives of her poverty-stricken students. But amid the gnarled live oaks and run-down plantation homes lies the century-old history of three young women, a long-ago journey, and a hidden book that could change everything"--… (mere)

A very interesting story, but sometimes it was hard to follow with the jumping back and forth between eras. ( )

The dramatic story of three young women searching for family amid the destruction of the post–Civil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who learns of their story and its vital connection to her students’ lives.
  BLTSbraille | Sep 6, 2021 |
Very interesting and important story, but I thought the narrative bogged down after about the middle of the book. Somewhat disappointing. ( )

This is a beautifully written book about families that were torn apart in the time of slavery and the aftermath of the Civil War. The novel is told in alternating voice, by Hannie in 1875 and Benny in 1987.
Hannie is a former slave who still lives with her former owners, the Gossetts. She goes with Missy Lavinia Gossett and Juneau Jane (the child of Mr. Gossett and his mistress) from LA to find Mr. Gossett who has gone missing in TX. On their journey, they discover newspaper articles requesting help finding members of the family.
Meanwhile in 1987, Benny is a new teacher struggling to get the students interested in learning. Along with one of her students, she uncovers a treasure trove of books leading her to help bring history alive for the students, and highlighting the slave-0wning history of the town.
Interesting historical fiction--well-done! ( )

Sad thing when stories die for the lack of listenin' ears.
Augustine has taught me that the past travels with you. It's whether you run from it or learn from it that makes all the difference.
Every time you mourn for me, I'll be far away. But when you celebrate, I'll be right there with you, dancing.
