As her Wisconsin community endures a long season of drought and the shockwaves of World War II, fifteen-year-old Cielle faces a more personal calamity: the unexpected death of her father. One balmy summer afternoon, she finds him hanging in the barn ― the start of a dark secret that threatens her family's livelihood. As war rages elsewhere, in the deceptive calm of America's heartland Cielle's family contends with a new reality and fights not to be undone.
