When Winter Robeson Came
Eden is expecting two weeks of summertime fun when her cousin, Winter Robeson, comes to visit her in Los Angeles in 1965. But it turns out he’s not just there to sightsee. Winter is determined to find out what happened to his father, who disappeared ten years earlier from the Watts area of LA. So, the cousins set out to investigate together, and what they discover brings them joy—and heartache. Then suddenly, the Watts Riots breakout.
For Eden Coal, a pianist who hopes to become a composer, those summer days with Winter Robeson are like a song with an unexpected ending, full of changes in tempo and mood, a song that is absolutely unforgettable.
