    Melinda Haynes' Mother of Pearl was an unexpected sensation, chosen for Oprah's Book Club and selling more than half a million copies in hardcover. Now with the same stunning language, Haynes returns with Chalktown, a moving story of redemption and renewal set in a small village of folks who only communicate through the chalkboards hanging from their front porches.
