MURFREESBORO — Return to the Cumberland Island, Ga., of the 1800s for a stroll through “Plum Orchard.”

Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. June Hall McCash, author of the historical novel “Plum Orchard,” will air on the next edition of “MTSU On the Record” from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, April 8, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, April 14, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).

“Plum Orchard” is the story of a woman born to a white plantation father and a slave mother but not fitting into either white or black life.
