Nonny Frett understands the meaning of the phrase "between a rock and a hard place" better than any woman alive. She has two mothers, "one deaf-blind and the other four baby steps from flat crazy." She has two men: a husband who's easing out the back door; and a best friend, who's laying siege to her heart in her front yard. And she has two families: the Fretts, who got her and raised her right; and the Crabtrees, who lost her and won't forget how they were done wrong. In Between, Georgia, population 90, a feud that began the night Nonny was born is escalating, and a random act of violence is about to ignite decades of family secrets.
