DEED SO, a coming of age story, takes place in a small Southern town in 1962. It was the last year of innocence -- the year before the Kennedy assassination, the civil rights struggle, feminist activism and the Vietnam War changed America forever. Brainy twelve-year-old Agnes Hayden Bashford (Haddie) wants nothing more than to leave Wicomico Corners and escape to the exciting world beyond its narrow, tradition-bound borders. A series of shocking incidents brings the outside world crashing down on her backward village, exposing long-buried family secrets and setting Haddie on a collision course with an unstable firebrand who will have to silence her to protect his identity.
