The summer of 1988 brings all kinds of new developments to Bassville. Mona Butterfield's busy establlishing her farm stand, Dirty Girl Veggies, while Maw Cooper cooks up a fresh scheme to make fame and fortune off his world famous minnows. At Traysons Crossings the first houses have been built and two families have moved in. While the locals decide how they'll welcome the new people, the Wissipaw River carries a new threat to its shores, dividing the town's loyalites in its wake.
The third of Melissa Westemeier's novels set in Bassville brims with humor, humanity and life in a rural riverside town.
