A Novel by the Author of Billy.

In the dusty, rural town of Supply, North Carolina, in the last year of World War II, Holly R. Hill walks from church to her friend Elsie's house and home again in a repetitive circle, waiting for the young men to come home and life to return to normal. Her hopes become dimmer and grayer as each day brings another loss. But one afternoon she meets a handsome, educated, black painter in the field by the creek. The familiar, tired landscape of home becomes transformed as she sees through his eyes and discovers the beauty of nature, the solace in solitude, and the fervent joy of new love.
