Abstract:

In 1946, Sally Werner, the teenage daughter of hardscrabble Pennsylvania farmers, experiences something between rape and seduction at the hands of her cousin, resulting in a baby, family shame, and her running away. Each time Sally feels her past catching up with her, she follows the Tuskee River, finds a new town and assumes a new identity, eventually graduating from taking the charity--and more--of others to supporting herself. Her story is pieced together years later by her granddaughter, also named Sally, and a man who believes himself to be the infant she abandoned.
