Famieis a mulatto girl, a half-breed. Her ancestors were free blacks who rivalled the white planters in wealth and culture. But on a Louisiana plantation in the 1920's, Famie is an outcast, rejected by whites because of her black ancestors, and unwilling to associate with the sharecroppers who are descendants of slaves. An illicit love affair with a white landowner leaves Famie with a son to raise. Her dream is that Joel will someday become accepted into white society. But in her struggle to transcend race and class Famie must sacrifice the last links to her past. The moving story of love in a Cane River community bound by race and class.
