How do two wrongs make a right when star-crossed lovers meet?
Lily Vanderhoof’s poor Catholic family is barely scraping by, and her future holds a precarious relationship with a local farmer. Is that all life offers for her? Why can’t she be one of those fancy-dressed passengers connecting to all points beyond Hub City? Then she meets her ideal man at her best friend’s wedding. Although she’s already engaged, Benjamin is everything she’s ever hoped for. Falling in love with him will certainly scandalize the 1933 small town as well as challenge her religious values and her allegiance to family.
Will she rise above her station and find true romance through a bit of rebellion?
