Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
This is a story of life in a southern Indiana town in the late 1960's and early 70's, a place where the villagers struggle to preserve their long held All-American ideals of God, Football, and the Constrtution on the trumoil of dramatic social and political revolution sweeping the nation. It is a story of love and hate, hope and despair, heartbreak and happiness, tolerance and intolerance. Felix, a trumatized soldier returning from war and seeking his peace, hitchhikes into town and takes up the mantle of the retiring English teacher and local institution, Miss Harrison, and moves into the abandoned Old Grinne Place a mile of so out of town. He finds his peace in his students, those seeking their own peace in the turbulence that lies hidden beneath the neat neighborhoods and the fertile corn fields and the soothing waters of the Whitewater river that winds through Potato Ridge and disappears around the bend.
Subject: Small town life > Fiction.
