Pearl Tull is nearing the end of her life but not of her memory.
It was a Sunday night in 1944 when her husband left the little row house on Baltimoreâs Calvert Street, abandoning Pearl to raise their three children alone: Jenny, high-spirited and determined, nurturing to strangers but distant to those she loves; the older son, Cody, a wild and incorrigible youth possessed by the lure of power and money; and sweet, clumsy Ezra, Pearlâs favorite, who never stops yearning for the perfect family that could never be his own.
Now Pearl and her three grown children have gathered together againâwith anger, hope, and a beautiful, harsh, and dazzling story to tell.
About: Eighty-five-year-old Pearl Tull recalls the desertion of her husband and her attempts to raise three children, who must come to terms with themselves and their father after their mother's death.
