Hope, a thin, tow-headed child with sad hazel eyes, stands barefooted in a dusty farm lane, watching the horse-drawn wagon take her mother away. Her beloved Momma has died a senseless death, and Hope must face life without her guidance and love.
Pop, completely broken by his young wife, Lucy’s, sudden death, turns more and more to the bottle to ease his pain. Hope’s baby sister, Nollie, is taken away by relatives, and Hope sees her world being destroyed.
From the hard scrabble farm in Appalachia where she was born, through homes of relatives and a foster home, to the coal towns of Western Maryland, Hope seeks to fi nd someone to love her, a home of her own, and a way to come to grips with the loss of Momma, the center of her young world. Follow Hope as she follows the fascinating journey to find happiness and closure.
