Fifties style fun for women’s fiction- and totally a page turner!
It’s 1953, and America is gripped in fear as the Cold War reaches feverish new heights.
While the nation worries about communists, 16-year-old Bernadette Vaughn holds court in the family bomb shelter, finagling a way to read Kinsey’s groundbreaking work on human sexuality. Her best friend, Faith McNulty, is a devout Catholic who dreams of staying in their small town, marrying Allen Hanlon, and raising a family. Their awkward and unattractive friend, Octavia Mansfield, doesn’t have room in her life for boys, dreams, or God. She spends most of her young life caring for her severely disabled brother.
The three friends spend hours discussing the possibility of the world ending. Their discussions eventually lead to a dramatic summer that changes their lives forever.
