Newly eighteen, she is ready to leave the limitations of her small-town life behind. Carson, Virginia, may be where she was born, but it's not where she sees her future. An inbound freshman at Howard University, she has her eyes on a bright, new life in the nation's capital. There, she will truly blossom into the woman she is destined to be. She can't wait to start her journey.
For Billy, it is love at first sight. Paris is slightly older, and Billy slightly wiser; and a romance between two people of different races presents a complication.
Both know that their budding love is a problem. In 1965, interracial romance is a dangerous dream to pursue. Determined to win her heart, no matter the cost or peril, Billy romances her with a single-minded pursuit. Despite their differences in age and race, her future and his present, and the crippling intolerance and racism their relationship faces, they will fight for their love...together.
