Come Next Spring
It’s 1949 in Tennessee Smoky Mountain–country, and everything in twelve-year-old Salina’s life seems suddenly different. Her sister is engaged, her brother Paul is absorbed in caring for his foal, Sugar-Boy, and Salina feels she has nothing in common anymore with her best friend. This novel for young people captures the insular spirit of the mountain people, the breathtaking country itself, and a girl’s struggle to accept the inevitability of change.
