A rural Kentucky teenager comes of age in the summer of 1969 in this novel by the New York Timesbestselling author of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek.

Nameless, Kentucky, in 1969 is a hardscrabble community where jobs are few and poverty is a simple factjust like the hot Appalachian breeze or the pests that can destroy a tobacco field. RubyLyn Bishop is luckier than some. Her God-fearing uncle, Gunnar, has a short fuse and high expectations, but he's given her a good home ever since she was orphaned at the age of five. Yet now a month shy of her sixteenth birthday, RubyLyn itches for more.

Maybe it's something to do with the paper fortunetellers RubyLyn has been making for townsfolk, each covered with beautifully wrought, prophetic drawings. Or perhaps it's because of Rainey Ford, her black neighbor who works alongside her in the tobacco field and with whom she has a kinshipdespite the disapproval of others.

RubyLyn's predictions are just wishful thinking, not magic at all, but through them she's imagining life as it could be, away from the prejudice and hardship that ripple through Nameless

"A reader always recognizes when the author has poured her soul into a body of work. [This]is a tender, beautifully written second novel."Ann Hite, author of the Black Mountain series**
