Summary, etc.: 1950 Tennessee, a time and place that straddles the past and present. Ivorie Walker is considered an old maid by the town (though she's only in her early thirties) and she takes that label with good humor and a grain of salt. Ever since her parents passed away, she has hidden her loneliness behind a fierce independence and a claim of not needing anyone. But her mother's death hit her harder than anyone suspects and Ivorie wonders if she will be alone forever. When she realizes that someone has been stealing vegetables from her garden--a feral, dirty-faced boy who disappears into the hills--something about him haunts Ivorie. She can't imagine what would make him desperate enough to steal and eat from her garden. But what she truly can't imagine is what the boy faces, each day and night, in the filthy lean-to hut miles up in the hills. Who is he? How did he come to live in the hills? Where did he come from? And, more importantly, can she save him? In The Good Dream, as Ivorie steps out of her comfort zone to uncover the answers, she unleashes a firestorm in the town--a community that would rather let secrets stay secret.
