1957, Clayton Valley, Ohio. Ellie has the best grades in her class. Her dream is to go to nursing school and marry Brick McGinty. A basketball star, Brick has the chance to escape his abusive father and become the first person in his blue-collar family to attend college.

The evolution of women's lives spanning the second half of the twentieth century is at the center of this beautiful novel that richly portrays how much people know--and pretend not to know--about the secrets at the heart of a town, and a family.
