When she was a child, Renae and a boy named Patrick were friends. They shared secret adventures. They shared secret hiding places. But they never told each other about the secret worlds hidden inside their houses. Their sharing stopped one fall afternoon when Patrick walked home from school and opened his front door to find something terrible had happened while he was gone. Sixteen years later, Renae’s father dies suddenly. Staring at his casket in the funeral home, she feels a release, and tumbles back in memories to untangle the connections between herself as a young girl and the woman she has become. Her memories begin with Patrick, and in them she finds that the fearful choices she made when they were childhood friends are the same choices she’s been making ever since. Because the secret world of the house she grew up in has been following her around.
Set in the American South during the social and sexual turbulence of the 1960s and 1970s, The Hiding Place Girl is a haunting look at a time past, and a painfully truthful telling of a girl's secret adolescence and young adulthood.
