||"Although the country is poised on the eve of the Sexual Revolution, life in the small town of Orchard Hill is still traditional and predictable. The whole town knows Lizzy's bad reputation and won't let her forget it. But when Billy Ray Davenport, the son of a widowed itinerant minister, arrives in the summer of 1959, he discovers an indomitable spirit behind the allure his father says is "designed to lead men astray." Lizzy spouts quirky bursts of wisdom and exudes an effortless sensuality that calls to him like a siren's song. Billy Ray thinks he could be the one who helps her swim against the tide of disapproval-- he could free her once and for all. But a stormy path awaits the unlikely pair. Lizzy's past can't help but shape her future, and ready or not, this beautiful and complex mystery girl is about to change Billy Ray's life-- and his heart-- forever"--Publisher's website.
