Summary
Luke meets Gracie, and despite her being a girl, they become close friends. When the citizens of the small, rural, 1940s town that Luke lives in learn that Gracie and her mother have a shady past, Luke must decide whether he will stand up for his new friend or save his own reputation
Summary
Gracie is different than anyone Luke has ever met: she's lively and fun. But life in a small Ontario town in the 1950's can be hard: the townspeople soon discover a secret about Gracie's mother's past and begin to shun them for past mistakes. The Glory Wind is a coming of age story dealing with friendship, loyalty, hypocrisy and forgiveness.
