From the Publisher
Annotation At the turn of the 20th century, Clarence King was a renowned scientist, a bestselling author, and the cherished son of a notable white Newport family. James Todd was a black Pullman porter, husband of 12 years to Ada Copeland, proud father to their five children. James Todd was dying, but he had a surprise for Ada before he went: he revealed to her that he was, in fact, Clarence King. Martha Sandweiss provides the details of this remarkable double life, and the struggles Ada Copeland endured to come to terms with her husband's deceit and provide her children with his rightful heritage. A finalist for the 2009 National Book Critics Circle award for biography.
