Eve, privileged child of an old Atlanta family, meets Daniella in the fall of 1962, on their first day at the all-girls Belmont College in Virginia, where the two are paired as roommates and become fast friends. Daniella, raised in Georgetown by a Jewish father and a Methodist mother, has always felt the tension of being an insider-outsider. But at Belmont, her bond with Eve finally allows her to experience the ease that comes with belonging. That is, until the realities of the caste system of the South force the girls to question everything they thought they knew about the world. For Eve, this dawning knowledge, coupled with America's growing involvement in the conflict in Vietnam, leads her toward radicalism, a choice pragmatic Daniella cannot fathom. After tragedy strikes, Eve returns to Daniella for help in beginning anew, hoping to shed her past in a conversion story that could only happen in America. But the past isn't so easily buried, as Daniella and Eve discover when their daughters, Anna and Sarah, are caught up in the secrets they thought no one would ever know"--"@en ;
