Summary
A tale inspired by "The Great Gatsby" is set in the contemporary South and follows the difficulties endured by an extended black family with colliding visions of the American dream. "JJ Ferguson has returned home to Pinewood, North Carolina, to build his dream house and to pursue his high school sweetheart, Ava. But as he reenters his former world, where factories are in decline and the legacy of Jim Crow is still felt, he's startled to find that the people he once knew and loved have changed just as much as he has. Ava is now married and desperate for a baby, though she can't seem to carry one to term. Her husband, Henry, has grown distant, frustrated by the demise of the furniture industry, which has outsourced to China and stripped the area of jobs. Ava's mother, Sylvia, caters to and meddles with the lives of those around her, trying to fill the void left by her absent son. And Don, Sylvia's unworthy but charming husband, just won't stop hanging around. JJ's return and his plans to build a huge mansion overlooking Pinewood and woo Ava not only unsettles their family, but stirs up the entire town."--Provided by publisher
