“…evocatively written…”–Kirkus Reviews
Caddo Parish, 1913. On an October morning, a Klansman confronts seventeen-year-old David Walker at a hidden oxbow lake where he has gone to hunt. David accidentally kills the man and hides the crime. His determination to protect his family from reprisal drives him far from home and into manhood.
Shreveport, 1927. Cargie (rhymes with Margie) Barre and Mae Compton are two vastly different young women, but both are defying convention to reach for their dreams. The men in Cargie’s and Mae’s lives help and hinder them in more ways than one. After years in hiding, David Walker finally resurfaces, and we discover the past is never as far from the present as it seems.
How far would you go for a friend?
Twenty-nine-year-old novelist and former blackjack dealer Cami Taylor seems to have it all–but just underneath her confident exterior and newfound celebrity is a young woman in trouble.
Cami begins a quest to find happiness, but what she finds instead is a friend. When her life is derailed by a devastating turn, Cami discovers the control she thought she had was only an illusion.
