Item description for The Annie Chase Story by Aileen Ridings Bennett...
As fireflies jitterbug to cricket music in Linton, Tennessee, the girls prick their fingers, sharing blood. "This makes us soul spirits, Jessie," Annie says, "our secrets are safe with each other forever." Jessie tastes the words; they settle deeply into her being. "Forever," she repeats. In the racially-charged Sixties, Annie Chase places a neatly printed "W" on her birth certificate in the space marked "Color or Race." The decision to become Anne Elinor Bradley changes her life forever, and puts her on the path of exposure. Jessie Tyler, now a journalist with the prestigious Washington, DC magazine, Classic Magazine, receives a plum assignment that could supercharge her career: the chance to interview Anne Elinor Bradley, the potential first lady who some suspect is passing for white. After their reunion, Jessie's childhood vow haunts her as she is faced with a decision that could change the course of history. The Annie Chase Story is a moving exploration of friendship, loyalty, and the secrets people share, sometimes painful to keep.
