“It wasn’t until adulthood that author Theresa Shea learned that as a child she had attend the March on Washington with her mother and been present for Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic speech “I Have a Dream.” Out of this moment comes Shea’s novel The Shade Tree (Guernica Editions), the story of two white sisters growing up in the Jim Crow south and a black midwife—all of whom must make life-changing decisions about where their loyalties lie: with their biological families or with a greater moral cause.”
