Publisher's Summary

"This is East Texas, and there's lines. Lines you cross, lines you don't cross. That clear?"

New London, Texas, 1937. Naomi Vargas and Wash Fuller know about the lines in East Texas as well as anyone. They know the signs that mark them. They know the people who enforce them. But sometimes the attraction between two people is so powerful, it breaks through even the most entrenched color lines. And the consequences can be explosive.

Ashley Hope Pérez takes the facts of the 1937 New London school explosion, the worst school disaster in American history, as a backdrop for a riveting novel about segregation, love, family, and the forces that destroy people.

    "Beautifully crafted"

    The writing of this haunting story is superb. It is one of those historical fictions that feels so very real that I want to research the characters and events despite the author's note at the end.
