Callie is a mentally challenged girl that grew into a beautiful young woman. In her care, because of a promise to her dying mother, is Angel Baby. Angel is physically challenged with cerebral palsy and fourteen years younger than Callie. This is a gripping story of their survival on the mountain. You will applaud their efforts to learn the written word taught by Dora and John, two dedicated school teachers that came to the mountain. You will walk with them to the ridge as they bury their loved ones, you will feel their loss. The black family, Leroy and Sadie Mayfield and their three sons, live two hills over. A highly segregated time that was ignored by the two families of dirt farmers who became friends. The sisters endure terrible hardships, however, they are bound by a promise for all eternity, and nothing, or no one can come between them...forever.
