Good clean read for Teens that's part historical fiction/part mystery with an amazing twist at the end.

The Civil War has begun and fifteen-year-old Tilly Pruitt has no idea how her life is about to change. As the town of Grand Tower gathers for a dance, a steamboat from New Orleans docks in their town. The arrival of two young ladies, Delphine and Calinda, will alter Tilly’s family forever. These mysterious young ladies seem to reflect what the north thinks about the south. Delphine resembles a true southern belle in her dress and actions while Calinda has a darker complexion, is silent and always follows behind. The town wonders, is Calinda a slave? When Tilly’s mom allows these two women to room and board at their home we discover that nothing is as it seems. Follow this engaging story as we discover the true meaning of family.
