Publisher's Summary

With America's entrance into the Second World War, the town of Blackberry Springs, Alabama, has exploded virtually overnight. Workers from all over are coming south for jobs in Uncle Sam's munitions plants - and they're bringing their pasts with them, right into Dolly Chandler's grand but fading family home turned boardinghouse. 

An estranged young couple from the Midwest, unemployed professors from Chicago, a widower from Mississippi, a shattered young veteran struggling to heal from the war - they're all hoping Dolly's house will help them find their way back to the lives they left behind. But the house has a past of its own. 

When tragedy strikes, Dolly's only hope will be the circle of friends under her roof and their ability to discover the truth about what happened to a young bride who lived there a century before. 

Award-winning and best-selling author Valerie Fraser Luesse breathes life into a cast of unforgettable characters in this complex and compassionate story of hurt and healing.

This precious tale reminded me so much of "To Kill A Mockingbird". It flowed with the same poignant, nostalgic cadence that draws the reader in. Absolutely wonderful.
