The magic of a first love at a rustic summer camp, far from the parental restrictions of the 1930s. In Cal’s arms, Bryna aches to hide from the reality of a world just emerging from the Great Depression and challenged by a second World War.
Brooklyn in the 1930s… Bryna Davis is fifteen and she’s never really been anywhere on her own. But this summer is going to be different. At far-from-home Camp Chickasaw, as a counselor trainee, Bryna discovers her own astonishing emotional and physical responses to an attractive young man.
Will her romance with older and more sophisticated Cal survive the summer? Even more questionably, can it survive the shrieking war headlines of the day? Bryna’s first-person telling of her story, as she teeters between lost innocence and young womanhood, is funny, wistful, and tender.
