After decades apart, childhood friends Jo Felsenthal and Gina Ingram spend their first summer together after more than forty years. A few weeks spent revisiting life as the girls they used to be and getting to know each other as the women they've become has shown them that time and circumstances have changed them both.
They're different women with different ideals and different convictions. Gina has spent her life in their hometown of Polk Ridge, Arkansas, nestled in the Ozark mountains as a counselor for the poor and drug addicted. She's sympathetic and open minded to others' hardships. Jo, by contrast, has lived her life in the military-an environment with a single-minded purpose and a demand for rigid discipline.
For Jo, blending back into a community that distrusts the very government she has spent her life defending, leaves her completely at odds with the people Gina seems to adore. When Jo meets Gina's friends Max and Maxine, she's thrown for a loop as these two conspiracy driven hippies challenge her beliefs about the government and law-all of which has shaped her into the woman she is today. Her instant dislike of Gina's friends suddenly threatens the newly reunited childhood friends.
InCrossing Yesterday, the second book in the Women of the Ozarks Scrapbook Series, Jo and Gina are forced to ask: Just how far apart can two people be and still find common ground?
