Meet Miss Dimple
It is 1942, and most of the men in the town of Elderberry, Georgia, have gone to war.

But when Miss Dimple Kilpatrick, who is as dependable as gravity and has taught Elderberry first gradersincluding Charlie for nearly forty years, disappears the following day, town residents are shaken down to their worn, rationed shoes. Knowing that Miss Dimple would never willingly abandon her students, Charlie and her friend Annie begin sleuthingand uncover danger surprisingly close to home.
