A Booklist top 10 Christian Fiction title of 2006.

"Hart, with humor and a nice southern accent, has written a fine follow-up to her highly praised first novel, Grace at Low Tide." - Booklist, starred.

"Intelligent and promising." - Publishers Weekly.

The year is 1989 and dark currents lurk beneath the smooth surface of the elite Virginia campus where Adelaide Piper has come to study. Her poetic sensibility and idealism only irritate the socialites and cynics who notice her at all. After a heartbreaking and violent loss of innocence, Adelaide must navigate between her genteel Southern upbringing and the gritty realities of a new generation. Only sheer determination, fueled by a spiritual awakening, will save her from drowning. Ultimately Adelaide must return to the very ground she once cursed--and to a deeper appreciation for her Southern heritage, however broken and imperfect it may be.
