When twenty-year-old Cindy finds her boyfriend, Jeremy, in bed with her best friend, she vows to never see him again.
Cindy knows she will no longer be allowed to live with her religious-fanatic parents when they discover she’s pregnant.
While visiting her aunt and uncle in North Carolina, she confides in one of their friends, Duffy. Not only does he give her a place to stay at his home he calls Raven Ridge, he treats her with the respect she deserves. Although Cindy suffers many challenges, Duffy’s influence helps her become a confident adult.
