Billy never asked for this life,
and she hates everything about it…
especially the secretive Mr. Leeson.
Sixteen-year-old Billy Gray has just been ripped from her wealthy, secure childhood home in Massachusetts and thrust into pioneer life on the Florida frontier. She’s plagued with questions concerning her parents’ reasons for the family’s move, but no one will give her a truthful answer. Just as Billy wills herself to be content, her father announces a shocking decision…one she has no control over but will test her will to love, forgive, and confirm her resolve to search for answers.
A beautiful coming-of-age story, with a twist of mystery, set in post Civil War Fort Myers
