In the summer of '72, Mudas (Muddy) Summers finds out that Peckinpaw, Kentucky's, century-old secrets tie into yesterday’s sorrows—a town's liar's bench — her mama’s mysterious death, and the brutal lynching of her boyfriend's ancestor. Running through the tale of two Kentucky hangings more than a hundred years apart is the story of Muddy and Bobby finding each other and themselves while forced to grow up fast in a time and place where the KKK is still a power, the South is struggling to find itself, and teens are caught between old and new ways of growing up.
