The paper examines this historical novel that traces the lineage of a black immigrant slaveholding family. The paper shows how the novel is a documented case of the extreme situation of "colorism" in American culture, where the wavering ideas of color and how it was defined dictated the validity of lives. The paper portrays the life story of the Hadnot family and explores issues of black culture, history, Jim Crow and the concept of "colorism."
