It's 1942, and the residents of the small town of Elderberry, Georgia, have been rattled down to their worn, rationed shoes. For young teacher Charlie Carr, life and love aren't going exactly as planned--her head dictates loyalty to the handsome corpsman, Hugh, but whenever she thinks of her best friend's beau, Will, her heart does the Jersey Bounce. Charlie is doubly troubled by the disappearance of beloved schoolmistress Miss Dimple Kilpatrick one frosty November morning just before Thanksgiving. Miss Dimple, who has taught the town's first graders--including Charlie--for almost forty years, would never just skip town in the middle of the school year, and Charlie and her best friend, Annie, are determined to prove it.

The accuracy of the author's portrayal of a southern small town during WWII triggered memories from my childhood. The plot was challenging as well, so I bought another book by Ms. Ballard, "The War In Sallie's Station", which was not owned by my library system. It was an equally enjoyable mystery of that period.
