It is the summer of 1951 in Tucson Arizona. Thirteen-year-old Kaitlyn has just lost her mother. She is being sent to a small rural town in South Carolina to live with an elderly aunt that she has never met. Her mother was the only family she ever knew. She is being torn from the only home she ever knew and loved.

While grieving the loss of her mother, Kaitlyn attempts to cope with her new strange surroundings and culture shock. She is frightened and lonely in the isolated old house with her elderly aunt.

Kaitlyn eventually becomes interested in her family roots. She is aware there is a mystery regarding her ancestors. Over time, she unravels the well-kept family secret with the help of her cousin, Rose.

Her desire to unravel the final part of the mystery takes Kaitlyn on an adventure to Philadelphia. A serendipitous encounter while on her quest for the final part of the mystery changes her life yet again.
