Wileyville, Kentucky, needs a graveyard superintendent.
Accepting the mayor's proposition, Sadie adds "'Fraidy
Sadie the Cemetery Lady" to the other roles that sometimes
seem unreal to her—former Dogwood Blossom Queen,

man who fancies himself King Solomon—or King Lear? But her
daddy's antics and a journey with her sisters into the past
bring Sadie a stunning revelation, and an understanding of
what she's been waiting for.
