"With humor and a nice southern accent...a fine follow-up to her highlypraised first novel, Grace at Love Tide."
-Booklist, starred review
The year is 1989 and dark currents lurk beneath the smooth surface of theelite Virginia campus where Adelaide Piper has come to study. Her poeticsensibility and idealism only irritate the socialites and cynics who notice herat all.
After a heartbreaking loss of innocence, Adelaide must navigate between hergenteel Southern upbringing and the gritty realities of a new generation.
Ultimately Adelaide must return to the very ground she once cursed, findinga deeper appreciation for her Southern heritage, however broken and imperfect.
