Book Cover
 
Description
Plumville, Georgia had an order to its way of life, and few ever upset it.Benjamin Drummond is heir to all Plumville had to offer--wealth, good looks, and a promising career as a future state judge. As a graduating senior at a local college, he's poised for success, if only he can keep his grades up. With the distractions of playing football, being in a fraternity, and having his pick of the women on campus, he has little incentive to study--until his assigned tutor turns out to be a black girl from his past who'd never left his mind...or heart.Coralee Simmons is determined to make it out of Plumville with a diploma in her hand and dignity in her stride, despite a social climate determined to stifle both. And with her family and friends supporting her each step of the way, Coralee knows she will go far. Yet when her mentor provides a tutoring opportunity to increase her edge, she's suddenly reunited with the white boy who'd meant too much to her as a child...and still did even now.Set during the turbulent 1960s, Benjamin and Coralee experience change in a community unprepared and unwelcoming of it. Can a relationship rekindle and bloom under such adversity, or will it succumb in the battle for Plumville's status quo?. --Provided by publisher.
