Publisher's Summary

When Liz Hoole, a free-spirited liberal from the Midwest, marries into a conservative Quaker family, she knows that raising children in compliance with Quaker values will be challenging. Twenty-five years later, she still feels like she's falling short of expectations. Fortunately, her faith and her friends in the small, rural North Carolina town of Cedar Branch keep her strong.
After her best friend's politically powerful father dies, Liz stumbles upon secrets from the past that threaten to unravel the current harmony in Cedar Branch, a town with a history of racial tension. As she researches more and eavesdrops on gossip at the Quaker Café, where everyone meets each morning, Liz soon discovers the truth about an injustice that she cannot reveal to anyone - not even her husband.
Surrounded by a cast of richly drawn Southern characters, Liz learns that even good people can make bad choices. Now, she must decide whether she has the strength to bring a past wrong to light, despite the consequences.
This is a new release of a previously published edition.

Misses The Mark For Me

I could not connect or relate to this story or the characters depicted. I know numerous Quakers and have attended meeting for worship as a guest many times. I have never encountered people like the ones in this book. The story seemed overly contrived and limited in depth and understanding. One dimensional with narration that at times was difficult to follow.

What a Bore! Skip this one!

Never heard of this author but thought I would take a chance since the story sounded interesting....what a bore!!! The narration was very monotone too... Would NOT get another either by this author or the narrator.
