Set in New Orleans in 1836 after a long period of French rule that permitted common-law marriages between free women of color and white men. If the men died, the women could inherit grand houses and dazzling fortunes. Unfortunately, when Beartrice Albans’ man passes away, his legal white wife is waiting to steal her house and her daughters’ dowries. Two daughters, Agnés and Odette, long for romance. Agnés is close to becoming an old maid, and Odette has a dark complexion that is not favored by the status quo. The other, Maude Lynn yearns only for the Lord. When a handsome bachelor comes calling, a family secret is revealed, and the foundation of Beatrice’s household is rocked to its core.

Anyway, it delighted me greatly to learn that Memphis has a noodle bar as well - Robtata Ramen and Yakitori Bar in Overton Square of Midtown Memphis. Nestled in a charming yellow house, Robata is THE place for noodle bowls and really tasty Japanese food, not to mention a killer sake selection! My Friday lunch consisted of ebi gyoza (deep fried shrimp dumplings) and the Shoyu Spinach Ramen Bowl - thin cut noodles, chicken broth, spinach, marinated boiled egg, green onion, BBQ pork, bamboo shoots, and bean sprouts. The food arrived literally three minutes after I had placed my order and it was well presented. I quickly dug in and found myself unable to stop eating.
