There was turmoil in Mississippi in 1945. Race relations were tense, money segregated and good versus evil went to war at Cat Lake. Missy Parker, a wealthy young white girl of just seven, is the target of a horrific attack. After her best friend, the son of a black sharecropper, saves her, it instills in her a desire to take on a life mission she won’t truly comprehend for years to come. As the families of these two children realize the truth of what happened that day at Cat Lake, their lives are forever connected. Torn between a life simple and ignorant, or one complicated by Truth, Missy Parker must come to terms with the battle she’s been thrown into….and either win it, or watch her loved ones die trying.
