Deserted by her father as an infant, 15-year-old Jill Wyman's single mother moves her from her home in a large coastal city to her grandparents' farm in the hills of West Virginia. As Jill grapples with life in the Appalachians, she encounters treasures, temptations, and troubles that she never dreamed of. She discovers faith from her Bible-believing backwoods family, adventure with the daughter of a local Baptist preacher, jealously and deceit from her vindictive and mysterious look-alike, and temptaion from her irresistible boyfriend. Set in the Cold War era of 1977, Jill's journey into young womanhood is fraught with conflict and self-doubt as she spends.
