Sally and Tony, and their neighbors Bowzie and Evelyn, are working to build a solid foundation for themselves and their growing families outside of Nashville. As Sally gets her beauty school license and Bowzie attends Fisk on scholarship, the world is looking wide with possibilities. But when Bowzie leaves school and joins the Freedom Riders the tenuous threads holding their lives together are stretched. TOO HEAVY FOR YOUR POCKET is a powerful look at the balance between security and risk, the bonds of love and friendship, and the personal cost of progress.
