When 1960s housewife Helen Hodges chances to meet textile mill owner David Drummond in her small South Carolina town, her repressed longing for a child is reawakened and discontent floods her life. As union and racial tensions in the town escalate, Helen is torn between her Catholic faith, her duty to her husband, and her growing desire to be with David. Overrun with guilt, Helen forsakes her lover and chooses to remain with her husband, until she learns some life-changing news and rushes to tell David before he leaves town, and her life…forever.

I really enjoyed this book written by Alexandra Christle! It was well written and draws the reader into the lives, loves, and trials of the main characters. There are twists and turns in the story that make this book hard to put down. When I finished this book, I found myself thinking about the story and the characters for days. That's my idea of a good book and this one delivers!
