The year is 1942, almost a year since the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor , the residents of the small town of Elderberry, Georgia, have been rattled down to their worn, rationed shoes. For young teacher Charlie Carr, life and love aren’t going exactly as planned her head dictates loyalty to the handsome corpsman, Hugh But whenever she thinks of her best friend’s beau, Will, her heart does the Jersey Bounce. Charlie is doubly troubled by the disappearance of beloved schoolmistress Miss Dimple Kilpatrick one frosty November morning just before Thanksgiving. Miss Dimple had taught the town’s first graders including Charlie, for almost forty years, would never just skip town in the middle of a school year Charlie and her best friend, Annie, are determined to prove it.
