Synopsis: This book is a memoir about Agnes and her bestfriend, Mary Lou. The diamonds belong to Agnes' celebrated grandmother, Harriet Bell Anthony. The story is a mix of characters, in place and out of place, in a peaceful town in Indiana in the late 1940's. The problems center on a sensitive, imaginative twelve-year-old girl who is caught in the inevitable struggle to understand and accept feelings, frustrations and loyalties. The conflicts intensify with the visit of a legendary grandmother in her diamond-heeled shoes. "Later, before they fell asleep, they swore everlasting friendship until the day they died and afterward in heaven." Diamonds are definitely secondary.

About the Author: Ann Brophy was born and grew up in Indiana. She graduated from Western College for Womenin Ohio with a degree in Creative Writing and English Literature. She then moved to New York City where she worked with Broadway playwrights and the cartoonist, Walt Kelly. After marriage, she and her husband moved to Southport, Connecticut where they raised three children and live today. She has published four books: "Flash and the Swan", a Young Adult novel, "John Ericsson and the Inventions of War" and "The Story of Jennie Wade", both Civil War biographies, and most recently "Summer Storm In Gettysburg", an historical novel, plus stories and poetry in children's magazines. She taught Writing for Children at Fairfield University, in addition to freelance workshops and editing.
