At fifteen, Mary Lou Poche is known in her small town of Houma, Louisiana for her profound beauty and intelligence. She and her best friend Gayle Gautreau believe their futures are as bright as the Southern sun. On September 6th, 1958, Mary and Gayle strike out on their first adventure to the fall festival—alone—where they meet a mysterious psychic who sends Mary reeling from the revelation of events that will affect her for years to come. In the reading, the psychic speaks of secret keys that will unlock Mary's safety and of a difficult choice between two men. The Creole psychic woman says, "Choose de right one an' you will know peace and success ... choose de wrong one an' you will suffer in bondage many a year." Is the reading purely whimsical entertainment ... or a frightening glimpse of things to come?
