by R. Stephen Lemler

When Frank Benjamin, a Jewish teenager from New York, agrees to drive his black maid, Esther, to North Carolina to visit her sick sister in the summer of 1967, he has no idea he is about to set out on the ride of his life. What is supposed to be a quick and easy drive to and from Eden, North Carolina , soon turns into an odyssey, during which Frank is chased down by a gang of bikers, unknowingly befriends the Grand Wizard of a local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, rescues Esther from a cult, and finds himself in a number of unexpected situations. Along the way, Frank and Esther make both friends and enemies, all the while discovering a thing or two about race relations in 1960s America.
