At the height of Jim Crow laws, E'kalb Hollow is a small African American town located deep in the woods of Southern Virginia and home to the resilient Braxton family. Unending hurts, pain, and devastation shattered the lives of this family time and time again. Despite the fact that bigotry and racism rocked their world, neither had the power to destroy their self–respect. As with any devastating circumstances, time is the antidote for healing. In the long run, the Braxtons learned to mend their broken spirits by weeding out offenses and treasuring happy times and precious memories.
