It is 1932MorePeach Creek was worlds away from the injustice all around. Cousins should be licking ice cream cones in the summer heat, not waiting on the court house steps for the jurys verdict. Would the accused be convicted of the shocking murder? It is 1932 and Faith Dansfield, 17, travels from Seattle to Peach Creek, West Virginia for a visit with relatives. In the coal-rich Appalachian Mountains, the challenges of the Great Depression, mining wars, Prohibition, and segregation are all round, like the unfamiliar heat and humidity.

Faith, however, is immersed in family reunions, church socials, parades, and picnics. When a scandalous murder occurs, Faith discovers the corrupt underbelly of Logan County and the hypocrisy of certain citizens. This celebration of country life is based on journal entries from the authors mother, who described a world where canning fruit and kissing boys were the norm.

As summer progresses and peaches grow, Faith finds her own moral center. Family bonds are strengthened through challenges and hard lessons learned during this messy and glorious summer in Peach Creek.
