-"Booklist," starred review
The year is 1989 and dark currents lurk beneath the smooth surface of the elite Virginia campus where Adelaide Piper has come to study. Her poetic sensibility and idealism only irritate the socialites and cynics who notice her at all.
After a heartbreaking loss of innocence, Adelaide must navigate between her genteel Southern upbringing and the gritty realities of a new generation.
Ultimately Adelaide must return to the very ground she once cursed, finding a deeper appreciation for her Southern heritage, however broken and imperfect.
