Publisher's Summary

Light-skinned black woman Irene Redfield encounters an old childhood friend - Claire- who is now "passing" as a white woman. Claire is married to a racist white man, who doesn't know she has African American blood. In spite of the danger of being found out by her husband and society at large; she finds herself helplessly drawn to Irene's world... "Passing" is a fascinating listening experience on many simultaneous levels.

Ending

Loved the book and the narrator but I was VERY dissatisfied with the ending. I would have given it a 5 but it was literally impossible for me to justify a 5 with that kind of ending. Very disappointed with the ending.
