Genre: Historical Fiction
Spitfire, Petunia Hollings was born in 1935 in the deep South. She spends her childhood working the cotton fields and longing for her daddy to love her as he does her siblings.
Spending time with her best friend Opal is one distraction Petunia looks forward to. Opal’s skin color was never a problem. Or so Petunia thought.
After young love sweeps Petunia to a new life in Chicago, she learns to accept love as it’s offered instead of expecting more than one can give.
When circumstances force her to return home, her friendship with Opal helps Petunia’s fractured heart start to heal.
Then a new, even more dangerous threat surfaces. Will Petunia find the strength to overcome the hatred surrounding her?
