(These are the musings of Rhoda Miller, in her first year ...)
These are the musings of Rhoda Miller, in her first year of teaching at Yellowhawk. A young woman whose antennae are as sensitive as her eyes are sharp, Rhoda's thoughts about, and observations of, her fellow teachers, her students, and the townspeople who are the fathers and mothers and aunts and cousins of the schoolchildren shape the novel. You will meet eccentrics and matchmakers; the well-adjusted and the ill-adapted; the wise and the funny. Their similarities and their differences will strike the same sympathetic chords in you they struck in Rhoda Miller, and if a lump rises in your throat now and then, that's because the people who live in Yellowhawk are as different and as much the same as the people you know best.
