Love was the last thing on Lily Kepler’s mind when she entered Vassar College in the fall of 1903. The thrill of living among other brainy women was soon disrupted by her reaction to the beautiful junior, Helen McIntyre, who became Lily’s Greek tutor. Before she had words to describe her emotions, Lily was in love.
Disaster strikes when Lily’s parents decide that she will not return to Vassar the next year. When Lily proposes that they make plans to reunite after Helen’s graduation, Helen loses faith and drives Lily away.
At home in Buffalo, New York, Lily must meet the challenge of fashioning her own future. She is determined to become independent of her family, and longs to be reconciled with Helen.
This is a paean to first love and the courage it takes to follow your heart, no matter where it may lead.
