A Stronger Kinship: One Town's Extraordinary Story of Hope and Faith

Anna-Lisa Cox

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Now, in an astounding historical-detective feat, Anna-Lisa Cox uncovers the saga of a place that took the road untaken. Starting in the 1860s, and for decades later, the people of Covert, Michigan, attempted to do what then seemed impossible: love one's neighbor - regardless of skin color - as oneself. Drawing upon private diaries, overlooked documents, oral histories, and contemporary records, Cox gives us intimate glimpses of the people who lived there, from William Conner, the Civil War veteran who went on to become Michigan's first black justice of the peace, to Elizabeth Gillard, who survived a shipwreck that left her and her family washed onto Covert's shores, only to find she loved the unusual community she came to call home.
