"The Epiphany of Grace" is a true story of a single mother's struggle to raise four children in the segregated South of the 1960s. Deserted after thirteen years of marriage Grace leaves California to return to her home state of Louisiana and is immediately confronted with everything she had escaped, the racial prejudices of her family, the social morés of the time, discrimination of women, and poverty wages in the workplace. This story shifts from poignant scenes of deep emotion to laugh-out-loud chapters as this heroic woman remains committed to providing for her children.
Burdened by extreme poverty, conflicted by her faith, and determined to teach her children good values in a time when it was dangerous to feel contrary, Grace's choice was stark but clear. She could either save her soul or her children. Not both.
