Set in Virginia in the late 1970 s, John Tierney has journeyed from his hometown of Burlington, Vermont to his aunt s house in Elkton, Virginia to come to terms with his future career plans versus his parents pre-determined ideas for his future. A sensitive, intuitive young man, John is torn between loyalty to his family and his personal beliefs that his father, the owner of a textile mill, has exploited the factory workers. The novel starkly contrasts the deplorable working conditions of the factory workers versus the management personnel. During his summer internship, John meets Melody, a beautiful yet mysterious young woman. As their relationship evolves, Melody inspires him to become his own person and to follow his dreams. Yet, Melody has a past that threatens both their relationship and their lives. Their entire summer is overshadowed by danger that constantly lurks in the shadows. Author Betsy Munson weaves a poignant story that demonstrates how passion can either enrich or destroy lives and how choices made long ago can haunt us forever.
