When Anne, a young country girl who lives in the beautiful countryside of South Carolina meets Catherine, a pretty and wealthy new girl in town, they become unlikely friends. Everything seems perfect until Catherine confides in Anne a secret too big to keep. When schoolmates learn of her secret, it threatens to tear apart not only her friendship but Catherine's family as well.
This powerful coming of age story has it all, at a time when segregation was the norm, Anne and Catherine defy the world, and in their powerful story, life lessons can be learned about kindness to all, strength and family values. Highly recommended!
