All of her life, Epiphany Jones has been tossed like a dandelion seed on the wind. Now, with the death of Mrs. Lorna - the family friend who took Epie into her home - the sixteen year-old must move to Dallas to live with her indifferent mother and new stepfather. Trapped on the low-rent side of Blue Sky Hill, the half-Italian and half-African-American Epie doesn't fit in and soon finds herself in trouble after a night of teenage vandalism. To make restitution, she is sent to work in another place she is not wanted: a home on the upscale streets of The Hill.
When J. Norman Alvord learns that his daughter has hired a teenager to stay with him in the afternoons, he is determined to nix the arrangement. Widowed and suffering from heart trouble, Norman wants to be left alone. But in Epie's presence, Norman finds a mystery. Deep in his mind lie memories of another house, another life, and a young black woman, a housekeeper, who saved him.
As the summer comes to Blue Sky Hill, two residents from different worlds will journey through a turbulent past, and find that with an unexpected road trip through sleepy Southern towns comes life-changing friendship and clues to a family secret hidden for a lifetime.
