Love in September by Frank Arcilesi
A young married girl tries to maintain a platonic relationship with a high school student after a misstep that she regrets. Friendship, love and humor come together in this slow-paced novel as Jimmy and Carol try to move on and get back to what they believe is normal after fate puts them together near Haywood High. A blackmailer creeps into the story to make matters worse.
It is the year 1958 as we descend down upon the small conservative community of Lakewood, Maryland. The residents there abide by certain unwritten rules about how they should conduct themselves in their everyday lives. At least that's what they believe.
Carol, an attractive real estate agent, has married young. She is very religious and attends church regularly. Carol blends in well with the other residents and does her best to lead a moral life while eagerly helping out her neighbors when they need assistance.
A few blocks away from Carol, the Trenton family also is living a quiet respectable staid existence. Soon however, their paths will cross as Jimmy Trenton, a high school student, and Carol develop an unlikely relationship.
