Overview

A bestselling book, an exhibit featuring the Hill-Billies of Heaven Holler, and a brutal murder turn the excitement of 1904 World’s Fair into a nightmare for the people of Daybreak. Country and city collide when Charlotte Turner’s son Adam turns their sleepy Ozarks village of Daybreak into a tourist attraction with his bestselling novel The Hill-Billies of Heaven Holler. But his idea of setting up a hillbilly exhibit at the 1904 World’s Fair has unforeseen consequences in all directions as Charlotte, her granddaughter Petey, and the rest of Daybreak are caught up in the exoticism, greed, and danger that surround the event. Adventure leads to violence at home and at the Fair, and Charlotte must make life-of-death choices to keep Petey safe and preserve her beloved community.
