For over fifty years the Turners have lived on Yarrow Street. Their house has seen thirteen children get grown and gone-and some return; it has seen the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit's East Side, and the loss of a father. But when their powerful mother falls ill, the Turners are called home to decide their house's fate and to reckon with how their past haunts-and shapes-their future. The Turner House is a striking examination of the price we pay for our dreams, and the ways in which our families bring us home.
