SHORT SYNOPSIS OF CHARLIE’S GIRL
Since the age of two, Rosalind Matthews has grown up in foster homes in Arizona following the death of her parents in an automobile crash north of Phoenix. Now she’s age fourteen, and her grandmother, Grace Matthews has sent for her to come live with her in the small town of Grayson, South Carolina. Rosalind has no idea what she will find when she arrives, but knows it has to be better than what she has been used to.
Grace has spent most of Rosalind’s fourteen years dealing with her own difficulties. The loss of her son, Charlie, and her husband, Sam, on the same day, drove her into a life barely tethered to reality. Bringing Rosalind to live with her now is more than a family duty. She hopes it’s a chance to reclaim the joy she lost with her beloved son.
