Dogwood, West Virginia, where his father steps into the
pulpit of a church under the thumb of town leader Basil
Blackwood. A fish out of water, Matt is relieved to forge a
fast bond with two unlikely friends: Dickie Darrel Lee
Hancock, a mixed-race boy, and Jesse Woods, a tough-as-nails

As the trio traipses the hills and hollers, Matt begins to

to learn the truth behind the only promise Jesse Woods ever
