WHEN THE FIRST QUAIL CALLS
THE TIME RETURNS, BOOK ONE
A story of forbidden love, family secrets, and reconciliation.
Charity Winslow was a young bride when the Civil War began. She poured out her heart—and her secrets—in her diary, never imagining that over a hundred years later her great-great-granddaughter would discover it hidden in the attic in a forgotten trunk. What Natalie discovers within its pages will shake the foundation of her entire family, and will have more personal implications than she ever imagined.
The year is 1967 and the Vietnam War is raging. The world is changing in many ways, but in a small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, things move at a different pace. Can Natalie find a way to bring reconciliation and healing to a place that still clings to the traditions of its deeply entrenched Southern roots?
