The yr is 1950, and in a compact city on Cape Cod twenty-six-yr-aged librarian Peggy Cort feels like adore and daily life have stood her up. Until the working day James Carlson Sweatt– the “over-tall” eleven-yr-outdated boy who’s the talk of the town–walks into her library and adjustments her daily life eternally. Two misfits whose lonely paths cross at the circulation desk, Peggy and James are odd candidates for friendship, but even so they shortly discover their life entwined in approaches that neither one particular could have predicted.
