Faith, courage, and an indomitable grandmother

When Prince and Pearl's father loses his job at the sawmill, he and their mother head north to make a better life for themselves and their children. They leave Prince and Pearl in Florida helping their grandma run her small general store she calls "the Ark," a haven for all the hardworking people in their small black community. These are the years of the Great
Depression, Jim Crow laws rule the town, and the Ku Klux Klan flaunts its power. Amid all the uncertainties, Prince and Pearl learn that they can depend on their grandma to protect them through life's many storms.

Tender charcoal drawings combined with this hopeful story warmly portray the importance of trust, patience, and the bonds of family in the face of adversity.
