The train that pulls into Turner's Crossing on May 9, 1905, carries a cargo that will change Charlotte Matthews's life. Among the eleven orphaned children aboard the train is 14-year-old Jesse Irwin. Jesse is just one year older than Charlotte, but in many ways the two are worlds apart. The two girls quickly become the best of friends. But before the summer is over, Jesse burdens Charlotte with the terrible secret behind a crime that shocks the town. In a novel distinguished by its sensitivity, its emotional honesty, and its resonant portrait of an unlikely friendship, Cathleen Twomey offers readers a fully realized coming-of-age story.
