This week on my blog I'm giving away a copy of A Promise for Tomorrow by Sara Dubose. To enter leave a comment on the contest entry with your PBS ID or other contact info. Winner will be picked on Tuesday, May 6. Good luck!
A small Alabama town in the mid-50's. A lazy summer afternoon. No concerns for Fannie Lea except her dreadful name. No concerns, that is, until she and her brother trespass on Boyd's property. Then, it's a grip around the waist, a knife to her throat and Boyd's breath, a smell like spoiled cabbage laced with tobacco and licorice.
Soon Flea (short for Fannie Lea) discovers secrets regarding other Sugar Hill residents. She learns the mystery behind Boyd's locked upstairs room and, eventually, places herself in danger to save a soul more helpless than she.
