STRONG, GOD-FEARING WOMEN AND A SPELLBINDING STORY OF REVENGE, FORGIVENESS, AND LOVE...
When Hayton McCoy is forced to face the ugliness of racism in the Georgia-South, does she risk losing the young man she vowed to marry, her friends, and her popularity? Or does she help her new friend, Rosie King, secure a chance to follow her dreams?
Rosie King, running from hatred and bigotry, finds herself on the doorstep of Katie McAllister McCoy, who also, at one time, was confronted with a terrible injustice left undone. However, rather than heeding the advice of Katie, Rosie takes justice into her own hands after bullying turns to a deed far more sinister. Her actions pit her and her new friend, Hayton, against dire elements to seek refuge at the river's end.
Within these pages a young girl's innocence is stolen and revenge goes awry.
