"Sticks And Stones" By Prentice Mills
Hammond Station, Georgia - 1969
In this very untraditional love story, two teenagers at the doorstep of adulthood ignite a firestorm of scandal in which romance, religious faith, bigotry, and conscience collide.
Amidst the social upheavals of the 1960s, the eighteen-year-old Hanna Page dreams of stretching beyond the limitations imposed upon young women by her fundamentalist upbringing and traditions of the Old South. But, finding herself with few options, she trades her dreams for an opportunity to escape a dysfunctional home life. Gabriel Mathews, a transplanted buy from the desert Southwest, also has a dream. His dream is a life with Hanna.
Midnight rendezvous at our of the way places, rumors of sex, infidelities, indiscretions, and open and notorious conduct shock the sensibilities of an entire community. Hanna and Gabriel's story has all the ingredients of a truly great scandal. But, something more extraordinary makes their story worth telling—two hearts filled with that rare heat that keeps love safe and warm and the same forever, no matter what is written on the final page.
