Set in Detroit in 2008 as the Great Recession and housing crises looms and in the 1940s when the first Turner moves there from Arkansas as part of the Great Migration, we follow the hopes and dreams of the large Turner family and the house that grounds them to this city.

Wonderful evocation of a city in transition and the toll it takes on those who have invested years in an East Side neighborhood. Cha Cha, the eldest, and his ghost memories got a bit long winded, but the author was able to resolve it in the end. Wonderful character studies in this family of 13 children.
