Suzanne Feldman's  debut novel, Absalom's Daughters,  follows the adventures of two teenage girls as they embark on a journey to find their father -- and themselves. 

The story is set in Mississippi during the 1950s, as the two young girls, one black and one white, learn that they share the same white father. He has abandoned both of the girls and left for Virginia. The sisters  set out on a road trip through the Deep South to find him.

The Frederick-based writer joins Tom in the studio to talk about her novel and its unusual inspiration.

Feldman will be talking about her book tomorrow at Curious Iguana in downtown Frederick at 11:00 a.m. .  It’s part of their Tuesdays with Tea book club series.
