Driving Miss Daisy

Taking place in Georgia from 1948 to 1973, Driving Miss Daisy tells the story of the unexpected friendship that develops between a fiercely independent Jewish widow and her African-American chauffeur. When Daisy's son decides she's too old to drive anymore, he hires Hoke to drive for her. Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start. But they gradually form a close friendship, one that transcends racial prejudices and social conventions. Fall in love again with this Pulitzer Prize winning classic.
