Anywhere you run, a novel, Wanda M. Morris - paperback

"After the murder of a white man in Jim Crow Mississippi, two black sisters run away to different parts of the country...but can they escape the secrets they left behind? It's the summer of 1964, and three innocent men are brutally murdered for trying to help black Mississippians secure the right to vote. Against this backdrop, twenty-one-year-old Violet Richards finds herself in more trouble than she's ever been in her life. Suffering a brutal attack of her own, she kills the man responsible. But with the color of Violet's skin, there is no way she can escape Jim Crow justice in Jackson, Mississippi. Before anyone can find the body or finger her as the killer, she decides to run. With the help of her white beau, Violet escapes. But desperation and fear lead her to hid out in the small rural town of Chillicothe, Georgia, unaware that danger may be closer than she thinks. Back in Jackson, Marigold, Violet's older sister, has dreams of attending law school. Working for the Mississippi Summer Project, she has been trying to use her smarts to further the cause of the black vote. But Marigold is in a different kind of trouble: she's pregnant and unmarried. After news of her sister's involvement in a murder brings the police to her door, Marigold sees no choice but to flee Jackson too. She heads north, seeking the promise of a better life and no more segregation. But has she made a terrible choice that will threaten her life and that of her unborn child? Two sisters on the run--one from the law, the other from social shame. What they don't realizes that there's a man hot on their trails. This man has his own brand of dark secrets and a disturbing motive for finding the sisters that is unknown to everyone but him..."--, Front jacket flap
