The Trees Will Clap
by Bonnie Mae Evans
With a few quick strokes of a fountain pen, young Yvonnah loses everything familiar, including her name. Clinging to her half of a wishbone that holds a precious promise, she embarks on an often bewildering life. Told from a child’s perspective and intertwined with nostalgic adult recollections, Lacey remembers with comical inquisitiveness her life on the rural Delmarva Peninsula in the 1960s.
