The book


This is 1912. America is the land of Jim Crow, of lynchings and prejudice.And you’ve just discovered that the grandfather you barely know may be passing for white. You have a husband, a child, a family. You can’t be black. You don’t know how. You follow him onto the newest, safest, biggest ship in the world. You plead with him to tell you the truth. But after the iceberg, you find the truth is far more complicated than you thought. And more dangerous…


Sarah Smith holds a B.A. and a Ph.D. in English literature, both from Harvard. She was an Assistant Professor of English for several years before going to work in the computer industry. She has worked for Lisp Machines Inc., Bachman Inc., ITP Systems, Inc., and Effective Educational Tech, which was acquired by Pearson Education in 2006.
