Whistling Past the Graveyard
by Susan Crandall

Determined to get to Nashville to find her mother in 1963, nine-year-old spitfire Starla Claudelle runs away from her strict grandmother's Mississippi home, eventually accepting a ride from a Eula, a black woman traveling alone with a white baby.

Set in rural Mississippi in the early-1960's, Whistling Past the Graveyard brings to life the racial tensions, family dynamics, and social difficulties of life in the South during this time. These issues are still prevalent in society today.
