Summary:
"Grad student Ronni Long wants the past to come alive, but her centenarian source Julia Stanford doubts all the adventures of her long life should be revisited. Aren't some things better left buried? Ronni is a cultural anthropologist. Almost. She's in Topeka to do fieldwork, and in a colossal stroke of luck, she had discovered a primary source better than any she could imagine: a woman who lived through Kansas' Prohibition era and remembers it vividly. After 108 years of living, what remains in your memory and your heart? Julia has achieved this rare longevity milestone and now spends her days in a Topeka nursing home. When Ronni mines the riches of Julia's past, what will she unearth? Ronni's journey creates a compelling present-day plotline while Julia's stories paint an intriguing historical backdrop. As the mystery unfolds, Julia's secrets and Ronni's lies put both women in danger."--back cover.
