Overview

The new novel from bestselling author Dorothy Garlock, the Voice of America's Heartland, set in the small town of Hooper's Crossing, New York in 1952. Librarian Lily Denton has spent her entire life as the dutiful mayor's daughter--polite, responsible, and devoted. She had no choice. Her mother died when she was little and all she wanted was to make her dad smile. So she did everything he ever wanted and stayed in town. But now at twenty-one years old, Lily has a secret. She's been fantasizing about leaving the small town of Hooper's Crossing and moving to New York City, being rebellious and free. She craves excitement and adventure. Little does she know trouble is on its way.... Life Magazine photographer Boone Tatum does not want to photograph a fall festival in some tiny little town. He's captured war-ravaged Europe and the jungles of South America. How exciting could hayrides and bobbing for apples be for Life's readers? But duty calls. The last thing Boone expected was to be utterly captivated by the town's beautiful blonde librarian so he snaps her picture and begins falling for her immediately. But Lily's over-protective father won't allow his precious daughter to take up with a rootless city slicker. Can Boone convince Lily--and her powerful father--that his intentions are true?
