Abstract:

When Arlene Fleet leaves town, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back toher hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found. Ten years later, God has broken His end of the deal. A young woman wants to find the golden-haired football hero who disappeared during their senior year...To make matters worse, Arlene's African American boyfriend, Burr, has given her an ultimatum - introduce him to her lily-white family or he's gone. All too soon she and Burr are on their way to confront Arlene's redneck roots, the secret she ran from, and the crime that stole her peace of mind. Yet while the truth threatens to destroy the life she has built for herself, it just may open her eyes to a love powerful enough to revise her past and alter her future.
