The City of Paxton, Georgia is changing because traffic is being siphoned from the long used north-south highways by the new Interstate Highway System. The politics of the south are also changing. Events in distance places influence the events of the community for which there is little or no control.
The citizens of Paxton are hard working people. The family life of our main character leaves a lot to be desired. Hildree was born into a family that just lived together. Love was not personified. Jeff and Harlan have love and big hearts that have been broken twice. We follow their lives for three years. Joy, sorrow, highs and lows. We meet those who sustain and support them through many experiences. Love does find a way.
