I enjoyed this. Read it in one sitting. Catherine Grace (always uses both names) is growing up with no mother. Her father is a very popular preacher; her mother drowned years before. She has a younger sister and no lack of mother-figures. Her huge dream is to get out of the small town where she lives. When she falls in love her last year of high school, she realizes she would have to give up her dream so she picks a fight with him. She leaves town on her 18th birthday, goes to the big city - Atlanta - where she does begin to achieve her dream. Then the unthinkable happens and she has to return home. The rest is a spoiler alert.
