About the book

An estranged daughter returns home to discover her father’s WWII history in a “beautifully written” novel of family rifts and the burdens of racism (Historical Novel Society). Rachel Fleischer has good reasons not to be at her father’s deathbed. Foaling season is at hand and her horses are becoming restless. But her horse manager, Malachi—more of a father to Rachel than Marty ever was—convinces her to go. When a stranger at her father’s funeral delivers an odd gift and an apology, Rachel is drawn into the epic story of her father’s World War II experience and the scandal that would cast a shadow on his life. As she learns about his time as a Jewish sergeant in charge of a platoon of black soldiers in 1940s Alabama, she finally begins to free herself from the past and choose a life waiting in the wings.“Prepare for Singer to keep you up all night ricocheting between a present day horse farm, family traumas, and the unthinkable racism in the military during WWII. The long arm of war travels through generations in this emotional drama.” —New York Times–bestselling author Jacqueline Sheehan
