Donavan Baker was my first love. I thought we'd be together forever. Are love was rare and special. It was the kind of love that everyone wanted, but they weren't lucky enough to get it. Donavan was my everything when I wasn't with him I was thinking about him. About the way he held me in his arms, the way his brown eyes would look deep into my light blue ones. But all that changed very fast.
Alice Parker fell in love with Donavon in 1965 they were not allowed to be together because they were different colors.
Alice and Donavon have a lot to face in there small town thomasville, Georgia. Like ex boyfriends, parents, best friends that think what they are doing is a bad idea. Everything was going fine until they got caught. Can they get themselves out of this one or will they lose the love the they've been waiting for.
