Publisher's Summary

It's 1965 and Annie Peters is just eight years old when her mother is committed full time to a mental health organization. Uprooted by their mother's illness, Annie and her four siblings find themselves torn between a Catholic-run orphanage and the final remnants of their shattered home. As tumultuous church and state changes begin to collide with the lure of an escalating pop-culture movement, the orphans of St. Vincents are determined to maintain the fierce independence that would forever mark America's early baby-boomer generation.

Pebbles and jagged stones.

This book skips down the path of life's quirky stones. Fun and delightful story; wanted more.
