General Note
Includes a reading group guide (pages 345-361) and a "sneak peek" at the author's novel The silent sister (pages 363-372).
In 1960 North Carolina, Ivy Hart is a fifteen-year-old girl whose family are tenants on a small tobacco farm. After her parents die, she is left with the overwhelming task of caring for several family members. Jane Forrester is Grace County's newest social worker, and she quickly becomes emotionally invested in her clients' lives, straining her personal and professional relationships. Jane's relationship with the Hart family tests her resolve to fight against racial tensions and state-mandated sterilizations.
