On an isolated Texas ranch, Dr. Lucy cares for abandoned animals. The solitude allows her to avoid the people and places that remind her of the past. Not that any of the townsfolk care. In 1959, no one is interested in a woman doctor. Nor are they welcoming Calvin and Justin Bell, a newly arrived African American father and son.

This is a heartfelt book. One definitely wonders how a young boy could have such high morals with such an angry racist father. He had no problem in beating and almost killing his son. People like this never change. A group of strangers meet and become each other's family. This is a wonderful story that is true to real life which leaves you happy for this wonderful group of loving, caring people.
