When workers in Pottstown, Pennsylvania uncovered a skeleton in 1972, the residents of Chicken Hill, a diverse community of immigrant Jews and African Americans, kept the mystery of who the skeleton was and how it got there. Neighbors Moshe and Chona Ludlow and Nate Timblin, the Black janitor, fought to protect a deaf child from institutionalization. Through stories of struggle and resilience, James McBride's The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store reminds us that love and community sustain us, even in the darkest of times.
