The exciting sequel to THE REMEMBER BOX.

Poised at the edge of a mystifying adult world, twelve-year-old Carley grapples with complexities she doesn't understand. Why the prickly tension between the beautiful divorcee, Maddie Raeburn, and the school principal, Jerry Donaldson? What lies behind the sudden and disturbing change in behavior of Grace, Uncle Stephen and Aunt Kate's maid? How did Emily, Maddie's sister-in-law, acquire her broken jaw and bruised face?

As the web of circumstances, relationships, and faith that surrounds her grows increasingly intricate, Carley makes a shocking discovery at the gully on the town's outskirts, and a longstanding mystery suddenly becomes something much more sinister. One very ugly skeleton has popped out of someone's closet. But whose? The futures of innocent people hand in the balance as Job's Corner digs to get at the root of its deepest, darkest secret of all.

"Sprinkle is adept at crafting memorable settings that feel historically authentic ... the writing is superb ... there's plenty of redemption and hope laced throughout ..." —Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

In this exciting sequel to The Remember Box, a young girl uncovers more and more secrets in every corner of her town

Readers of The Remember Box fell in love with the Southern warmth and drama of life in Job’s Corner. Now, in Carley’s Song, the second of the Job’s Corner Chronicles, young Carley Marshall is back and trying to understand grownups and love in a world swept into the confusion of the Korean War.

In the fall of 1950 when Carley is 12, three natives return to Job’s Corner after long absences. Clay Lamont, fresh from the Air Force, breaks Carley’s heart in her first crush. Maddie Raeburn, beautiful enough to be a movie star, causes quite a stir when she announces she is now divorced and plans to teach seventh grade. And Jerry Donaldson returns to become the school principal, igniting an old grudge in Maddie Raeburn.

Meanwhile, Carley stumbles her way into one secret after another and even comes across an old skull. She begins to wonder what other secrets are hiding in Job’s Corner. Will her friends ever find true love? And will she ever come to understand the secretive and often conflicting world of grownups?
