Alabama, 1956: While Elvis Presley was singing about love,
one young woman was learning about life.
loves Maggie Deloach, one of the most popular girls on
campus with everything going for her. An impeccable
lineage. Picture-perfect looks. The best sorority, and the
best fraternity boy's pin. The ultimate Southern belle,
Maggie knows what the rules are and is willing to play by
them. No surprises are waiting in her future -- but
neither are any disappointments.
Then, amid the
stifling heat of an Alabama summer, everything changes.
There is talk of a racial revolution brewing, one that
surely should not touch her protected world... but somehow
does. There is growing sexual awareness that she knows
should shock her... yet does not. There is a single act of
defiance and courage that will forever alter the way
others think of her... and how Maggie thinks herself.
"An absolute gem... a rare and wonderful book."
