About the Book
By the time fourteen-year-old Rosalind arrives in Grayson, South Carolina, she’s spent nearly her whole life in the foster care system without a family, without a past, and without a home.
But the sudden discovery of a long-lost grandmother and a house full of mementos from her father’s childhood isn’t quite the happy ending Rosalind was hoping for. Instead it’s just the first step in uncovering the secrets from her past and maybe even the key to her future.
Set in the 1960s, this unique novel breathes life into a forgotten era and illustrates how much you can discover from your own family’s history. Perfect for readers of all ages, it’s a story you won’t soon forget.
