Life in the James family is a struggle–and it’s about to get worse.
Proud generations of Jameses sat atop the Lamoyne economic and social ladder, but now they are left with only a failing pecan orchard, the subjects of quiet whispers and veiled ridicule. As they enter the tumultuous 1960s, eleven-year-old Tallulah strives to shield the James name and hold her family together. But her parent’s volatile relationship, erratic behavior, and hands-off approach to rearing their four children is never-ending fuel to the fire.
When betrayal and death arrive hand in hand, Tallulah takes to the road, headed to what turns out to be the not-so-promised land of California. She reinvents herself, but her scars run deep; she settles for security when complete happiness remains out of reach. And then, the secret that set her family on the path to destruction comes back to roost and Tallulah must risk her hard won security to save a beloved brother.
