It's the early 1970s. The town of Ringgold, Georgia, has a population of 1,923, one traffic light, one Dairy Queen, and one Catherine Grace Cline. The daughter of Ringgold's third-generation Baptist preacher, Catherine Grace is quick-witted, more than a little stubborn, and dying to escape her small-town life.Every Saturday afternoon, she sits at the Dairy Queen, eating Dilly Bars and plotting her getaway to the big city of Atlanta. And when, with the help of a family friend, the dream becomes a reality, Catherine Grace immediately packs her bags, leaving her family and the boy she loves to claim the life she's always imagined. But before things have even begun to get off the ground in Atlanta, tragedy brings her back home. As a series of extraordinary events alters her perspective-and sweeping changes come to Ringgold itself-Catherine Grace begins to wonder if her place in the world may actually be, against all odds, right where she began.

Professional reviews

"Catherine Grace Cline's mother drowned when she was 6. Since then, Catherine Grace has been impatiently waiting for her 18th birthday, when she can say good-bye to her sister, Martha Ann, her Baptist preacher daddy, and the small, boring town of Ringgold, Georgia. Narrator Tavia Gilbert brings Catherine Grace to life, filling her voice with the all frustration, sorrow, boredom, and longing of a young woman who is determined to find her life anywhere but at home. Gilbert's narration actually makes the story better than it is. As the author tries to work in every clichŽ of Southern fiction, the characters remain flat and the plot overworked, and the listener is left wondering where it all went wrong. N.E.M.
