A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD
By Theresa Anne Fowler.
In Oak Knoll, a verdant, tight-knit North Carolina neighborhood, professor of forestry and ecology Valerie Alston-Holt is raising her bright and talented biracial son. Xavier is headed to college in the fall, and after years of single parenting, Valerie is facing the prospect of an empty nest. All is well until the Whitman's move in next door - an apparently traditional family with new money, ambition, and a secretly troubled teen aged daughter.
