A stunning tour de force following three fierce, unforgettable Southern women.                                          

It’s 1924 South Carolina & the region is still recovering from the infamous boll weevil infestation that devastated the land & the economy.

Gertrude, a mother of four, must make an unconscionable decision to save her daughters from starvation or die at the hands of an abusive husband.                                                                                                                                                                                                   Retta is navigating a harsh world as a first-generation freed slave, still employed by the Coleses, influential plantation proprietors who once owned her family.                                                                                                                                                                                  Annie is the matriarch of the Coles family & must come to terms with the terrible truth that has ripped her family apart.

These three women seemingly have nothing in common, yet as they unite to stand up to the terrible injustices that have long plagued the small town, they find strength in the bond that ties these women together.  Told in the pitch-perfect voices of Gertrude, Retta & Annie, Call Your Daughter Home is an audacious, timeless story about the power of family, deep-buried secrets, & the ferocity of motherhood.
