Sweeping Up Glass

Olivia Harker grew up in 1930s Kentucky during a time of racial segregation and Depression. The spirited daughter of an adored father and a difficult mother, she shocked the locals by choosing the children of her black neighbours as friends and playmates. Now Olivia runs a ramshackle grocery store with her beloved grandson and her increasingly awkward widowed mother. She has little idea of the long shadow cast by events of her past, until she stumbles on a forty-year-old mystery that rewrites her childhood and turns her world upside down. As long-buried secrets explode along the valley, Olivia must get to grips with past betrayals if she is to gain a second chance at love, redemption, and long-overdue justice.
