On a humid summer day in the 1960s, a Boeing 707 chartered to ferry home more than 100 of Atlanta's most prominent citizens from a European jaunt, crashed in Paris shortly after takeoff. Overnight, the city of Atlanta changes drastically. Left behind are people faced with renegotiating their lives: Robert, a newspaper editor, must decide if he can reconnect with his beloved but estranged wife, whose swindler parents have left her penniless. Nineteen-year-old Piedmont Dobbs, recently denied admission to an integrated school, senses a moment of uncertain opportunity. And in this compelling novel, Mayor Ivan Allen is tasked with the job of moving Atlanta forward—with the hedonism of the 60s and the urgency of the civil rights movement at his city's doorstep.
