Summary
"On Easter Day, 1939, at Marian Anderson's epochal concert on the Washington Mall, David Strom, a German Jewish emigre scientist, meets Delia Daley, a young Philadelphia Negro studying to be a concert singer. Their mutual love of music draws them together, and - against all odds, advice, and better judgment - they marry. They vow to raise their offspring beyond time, beyond race, beyond belonging, steeped in song. But their three children, the unwitting subjects of this experiment, must survive America's brutal here and now."
Summary
Follows the marriage of David Strom, a German Jewish emigre scientist, and Delia Daley, an African American singer, as they, along with their extraordinarily gifted children, struggle to overcome the racial injustices of the 1960s
