Evelyn believes she and Travis are destined to be together, but as she grows up, she learns the heartbreaking lesson of true destiny we all discover the hard way--that not every love is meant to be, and that not all promising children end up to be promising adults. Set in small town Kansas in the 1980s, against the backdrop of Reaganism and religious fundamentalism, this coming-of-age tale is already drawing comparisons to Wally Lamb, Jane Hamilton, Mona Simpson, and Lorrie Moore.
