Story

Set in 1863, this is a galvanizing story of racial harmony undone by a country at war with itself, we meet the denizens of a local saloon called Paradise Square: Nelly Freeman, the indomitable Black woman who owns it; Annie O’Brien, her Irish-Catholic sister-in-law and her Black minister husband, Rev. Samuel Jacob Lewis; Owen Duignan, a conflicted newly arrived Irish immigrant; Washington Henry, a fearless freedom seeker; Frederic Tiggens, an anti-abolitionist political boss, and Milton Moore, a penniless songwriter trying to capture it all. They have conflicting notions of what it means to be an American while living through one of the most tumultuous eras in our country’s history.
