Summary
Mixed-race Callie LeRoux has always passed for white in her Depression-era Kansas town. But after her mother disappears in a huge dust storm, Callie meets a stranger who reveals that Callie's father (whom she's never met) is not only a black man, but a fairy -- and that Callie may be instrumental in a burgeoning war between the courts of the fae. Callie faces magical dangers at every turn in this story packed with atmospheric period details, intriguing characters, action, and suspense. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
