Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw island, America is a world away.

But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
