An unflinching look at a painful chapter in America’s pastIt’s 1922, and Woodrow Harper has moved with his widowed mother to his father’s hometown of Lawton, Oklahoma. Perhaps here he will find the closeness to his father that eluded him when his father was alive. Instead, in his new neighbor, Senator Crawford, Woodrow finds something that offers even more comfort—a father figure who understands him in a way his father never did. But there are ugly secrets beneath the surface in Lawton, and Woodrow’s desperate need for the senator’s approval may force him to make difficult decisions he will live to regret.
