OVERVIEW:

When the doors of a poor school district close, those students are bussed to Crystal Ridge, a much more affluent district. Emotions run high, feelings about race are rampant, even those who claim to not see color get into the fray. The lives of three women are particularly influenced: Camille Gray, PTA president and a perfect representative of women in Crystal Ridge; Jen Covington, career nurse whose desire for motherhood has finally been realized in her adopted daughter Jubilee from Liberia; and Anaya Jones, brand new teacher at Crystal Ridge who never imagined the minefield she has stepped onto. Their lives converge in a myriad of ways as each attempts to protect the ones they love. Can they do it without losing something greater.

This is a gripping story, one that is based on true events which makes it even more compelling to the reader. It will grab hold of you and come back to your thoughts long after you have finished the book.
