@ 5pm in the library to discuss
It is 1960 in North Carolina and the lives of Ivy Hart and Jane
Forrester couldn’t be more different. Fifteen-year-old Ivy lives with
her family as tenants on a small tobacco farm, but when her parents die,
Ivy is left to care for her grandmother, older sister, and nephew. As
she struggles with her grandmother’s aging, her sister’s mental illness,
and her own epilepsy, she realizes they might need more than she can
give.When Jane Forrester takes a position as Grace County’s
newest social worker, she is given the task of recommending which of her
clients should be sterilized without their knowledge or consent. The
state’s rationalization is that if her clients are poor, or ill, or
deemed in some way "unfit" they should not be allowed to have children.
But soon Jane becomes emotionally invested in her clients’ lives,
causing tension with her new husband and her supervisors. No one
understands why Jane would want to become a caseworker for the
Department of Public Health when she could be a housewife and Junior
League member. As Jane is drawn in by the Hart women, she begins to
discover the secrets of the small farm—secrets much darker than she
would have guessed. Soon, she must decide whether to take drastic action
to help them, or risk losing a life-changing battle.(Amazon)
