About The Book:
Life takes love and courage, but is sometimes full of regrets… Take an emotional ride inside the lines of this coming of age story told through the eyes of 10-year-old Cora Harris as she deals with being a biracial child living in the prejudiced South. Set in 1961 in a rural town of Tennessee, Cora learns the true meaning of family and how to love herself as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. A well-intentioned family lie surfaces accidentally one evening, which sets the pace for Cora to eventually seek out a way to heal broken hearts that had been devastated for years by racism that tore her family apart. Not everyone in her family will be willing to forgive the ones that hurt them and would rather keep the past buried. Can Cora convince her family that forgiveness is the only way they can move forward in life or will tragedy strike before she gets a chance to?
