Louisiana, 1954: Twenty-two-year-old Lucia Lafleur is bound for medical school until her fiancé issues an ultimatum—marriage or a career. Crushed, she takes the summer to decide. Yet when she meets Nicholas, a dark-skinned poet who soothes her aching soul, forbidden love blossoms. Now, pursuing her lifelong dream may mean relinquishing her heart—and escaping the South before her secret is discovered. $0.99 on Kindle.
