Broken relationships, timeworn gossip and unsolved murders are just some of the litter that lines the dusty road that leads to Adele, Illinois. Homeless and not quite jobless, Galena Malone and her daughter Rory arrive in this small river town as it slumbers in the summer heat. A gypsy at heart, Galena is an aspiring country-western singer who longs for the bright lights of Nashville, while Rory wants nothing more than a place to call home.
A remarkable story of the coming of age of thirteen-year old Rory Malone, "Rory's Song" embraces the tender emotions and confusion of a young girl growing up in extraordinary circumstances. Weary of their vagabond life, Rory vows that this time she and her mother will make a permanent home in the shabby Victorian boardinghouse shared by Rita Gilbert and her enigmatic aunt, Iris Brody.
But nothing is as it seems in this rural Midwestern village. As deadly secrets are revealed and a gruesome murder is committed, Rory is forced to make a choice between her mother and testifying for the handsome deckhand who has captured her heart.
