Historical | Multicultural African-American
On an isolated Texas ranch, Dr. Lucy cares for abandoned
animals. The solitude allows her to avoid the people and
places that remind her of the past. Not that any of the
townsfolk care. In 1959, no one is interested in a woman
doctor. Nor are they welcoming Calvin and Justin Bell, a
newly arrived African American father and son.
When Pete Solomon, a neglected twelve-year-old boy, and
Justin bring a wounded wolf-dog hybrid to Dr. Lucy, the
outcasts soon find refuge in one another. Lucy never thought
sheâ€™d make connections again, never mind fall in love. Pete
never imagined heâ€™d find friends as loyal as Justin and the
dog. But these four people arenâ€™t allowed to be friends,
much less a family, when the whole town turns violently
With heavy hearts, Dr. Lucy and Pete say goodbye to Calvin
and Justin. But through the years they keep hope
aliveâ€¦waiting for the world to catch up with them.
