During World War II, a family finds life turned upside-down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes turn on the newcomers. Rennie has just turned thirteen and until this time, life has pretty much been predictable and fair. But the winds of change are coming, and with them, a shift in her perspective and a discovery of secrets that can destroy even the most sacred things. Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas is a riveting exploration of the darkest—and best—parts of the human heart.,
A compelling new book from Sandra Dallas that “will undoubtedly draw apt comparisons with such novels as To Kill A Mockingbird and Snow Falling on Cedars”*
*William Kent Krueger, author of the prize-winning Corcoran O’Connor novels
