MAKING WAVES by Cassandra King
Publisher Hyperion, April 2004
In a small Alabama town in Zion County, life is finally looking up for
20-year-old Donnette Sullivan. Having just inherited her aunt's old house
and beauty shop, she's taken over the business. Her husband Tim, recently
crippled in an accident, is beginning to cope not just with his disability
but also with the loss of his dreams. Once a promising artist who gave up
art for sports, Tim paints a sign for Donnette's new shop, Making Waves,
that causes ripples throughout the small southern community. In a sequence
of events --sometimes funny, sometimes tragic--the lives of Donnette, Tim,
and others in their small circle of family and friends are unavoidably
affected. Once the waves of change surge through Zion County, the lives of
its people are forever altered.
