Summary
  • "Set in the Carolinas in the 1940s, a young woman reckons not just with the unforgiving landscape, but with the rocky emotional terrain that leads from innocence to wisdom as jealousy and betrayal threaten to accomplish what hardship never could--divide the family for good"--
  • For Wallis Ann Stamper and her family, life in the Appalachian Mountains is simple and satisfying, though not for the tenderhearted. Her older sister, Laci-- a mute, musically gifted savant-- is constantly watched over and protected. When the Tuckasegee River bursts its banks, forcing them to flee in the middle of the night, the tragedy opens Wallis Ann's eyes to the world. Carrying what's left of their possessions, the Stampers begin a perilous journey from their ruined home to the hill country of South Carolina. Wallis Ann's blossoming friendship with Clayton, a high diving performer for a traveling show, sparks a new opportunity, and the family joins as a singing group. But Clayton's attention to Laci drives a wedge between the two sisters, and jealousy and betrayal threaten to divide the family for good
