Ella Barron is determined that even the ravages of the
Dust Bowl will not affect the well-ordered life she has
built for herself and her special child, Solly, who lives
in a world of his own that even she can’t enter. Aware
that he evokes pity and distrust, Ella holds herself aloof
from her small community, but her new boarder, David
Rainwater, comes into her life— and changes it forever. As
economic desperation creates bitter social unrest in the
town and surrounding farms, Ella finds herself relying on
Mr. Rainwater’s soft-spoken advice and the steely resolve
of his convictions. But tensions escalate in the summer
heat, until one violent night everything they believe in
will be put to the ultimate test.
