in the rural American Midwest of the 1930s, this coming-of-age tale centers
around Laurie Moss, a soon-to-be high school graduate. When Laurie falls in love with Martin, a handsome drifter, this teenage protagonist must choose between her heritage and family's expectations, and her yearning to see the world.
