Baker & Taylor
A novel set against the backdrop of 1920s Texas captures the lives of members of a flourishing African-American community segregated from its white neighbors as two families--one white and one black--become caught up in a shameful, real-life episode from north Texas' history.

Based on the true story of a shameful episode in North Texas history, Quakertown draws on the rich texture of the South - of the Pecan Creek running along the edges of Quakertown, the remarkable and rare white lilac, and of the rising tensions marking each nod and greeting.
