Deed So, a coming-of-age story, takes place in a small Southern town in 1962. It was the last year of innocence - the year before the Kennedy assassination, the civil rights struggle, feminist activism, and the Vietnam War changed America forever.
Brainy 12-year-old Agnes Hayden Haddie Bashford wants nothing more than to leave Wicomico Corners and escape to the exciting world beyond its narrow, tradition-bound borders. A series of shocking incidents brings the outside world crashing down on her backward village, exposing long-buried family secrets and setting Haddie on a collision course with an unstable firebrand who will have to silence her to protect his identity.
Deed So is a novel in the tradition of To Kill a Mockingbird, laying bare the issues that marked the Sixties as a turning point in American History. Download and start listening now!
