Life is a paragon of childish innocence for the protagonist until family friend Marvin Cully, an African-American citrus picker, is viciously beaten and murdered by the Ku Klux Klan. As the story unfolds, Reesa must reconcile her neighbors' generosity and Southern charm with their bigotry and violence. The local police, a stronghold of Klan members, glosses over the brutal crime. Fearing no repercussions, the Ku Klux Klan embarks on a campaign of terror, blowing up African-American housing projects, Jewish community centers, and Catholic churches across the state.
In Mayflower, the only white family besides the McMahons to socialize with the black community are run out of town amid death threats and vandalism to their grocery store.

The dramatic finale recounts true events that brought about a measure of justice and decimated the Klan's iron rule over Central Florida.
