Description

Remembering the past can be like buying a return ticket for a train you aren't sure you want to board.

Rocking away on her peaceful front porch, Betty Grafton receives sad news which forces her to relive the darkest moments of her life. Surrounded by her family, a captive audience hanging onto her every word, she weaves the tale of how an unlikely and controversial friendship shaped her into the woman she is today. Exposing her own mistakes, fears, and soul deep heartbreak, Betty shares the hard truth about growing up in the South in the 1960's.

Though the years have blown by with hurricane force, the ache in her heart feels fresh. The threat of harm still chills her to the core. But the joy of friendship continues to sustain her.

    A well written, engrossing story of a sad but true time in American history. Danielle Stewart's characters are believable and honest and depict the horrible values of those small minded, bigoted people who lived through hate and fear.

    I loved this 1960's book of racial tension that existed in the south and how one family came to deal with it. Looking back after 40 years made it incredibly powerful. My first read by Danielle Stewart and look forward to more of her works in the future.

    A very good story. Couldn't put it down. Some very hard to read areas (get your Puffs or Kleenex ready) but you know that going in due to the subject matter. Loved the writing style. Will be reading more of this author's work.

    This was the best story ever. I love the person you've made of Betty. I cried when everything with the Klan came to a head. I loved your surprise at the end. It was hard getting the smile off my face. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to the next one.
