Description

The youngest of three sisters, Jill Summerfield is coming of age in southwestern Ontario in the turbulent decade of the Sixties. Her oldest sister is way too perfect; her middle sister is eccentric and dreamy. As the world around her changes, Jill moves from square to cool, from Bobby Vinton to the Beatles, and from cowgirl suits to push-up bras. And as Jill matures, she struggles to understand her sisters, parents, friends and boys, as well as her own emerging sexuality. In these stories of friendship and betrayal, Cross My Heart offers readers a vivid portrayal of the timeless passions and stresses of growing up female.
