"A love story which centers around 14-year-old Cassie Beckton, a young girl who lived on a farm in Wilson County, NC during the Great Depression. Her struggle to survive during those perilous, penniless days, especially after the death of her father, is one of strength and courage. Her efforts to attend school, to work as a nurse's aide in a local hospital, and her work in the tobacco fields to try to save the family farm lead to maturity which prepares Cassie for unexpected love."
