About this Book

Love, friendship, and humor come together in this tender romance as a high school student and a young married girl are attracted to each other in a small conservative town in the mid 1950s.

Jimmy Trenton finds something fresh and beautiful in Carol Dulaney, a religious young girl who wears a mysterious gold chain around her neck that intrigues him. And Carol discovers that Jimmy’s positive outlook on life and sensitive nature fulfills a need for love in her life. Their separate worlds clash unexpectedly in Lakewood, Maryland where respectability is very important to its residents or at least it seems on the outside.

The novel is slow-paced and filled with twists and turns as both struggle to break free of this unlikely and forbidden attraction to each other and also must deal with a blackmailer’s threats. High school days weren't supposed to be this way as Carol jolts Jimmy's curriculum a bit and she's definitely not a student.

I had put them aside as obstacles I did not wish to deal with…………..……..,
