Dusty diaries, family letters and treasured memorabilia found in a moldy New Orleans basement, reveal the lives of five generations and connect the author with her family's past in a way no history book ever could. These ancestors were formed into shadowy flesh-and-blood people she would recognize on the street if she passed them.
