In 1945, the town of Four Corners, Georgia found they were having babies born with four-arms. It happened on the black side of town first, and they tried to keep it a secret . . . until the first white babies were born with four-arms. Now the two sides of the town had to come together to save itself and regain its balance. This story has heart, humor, and action as the town copes when the discovery begins with one of its own after a big rig truck crash. Four Corners is never going to be the same . . . again . . .

"I picked this up at a convention because it sounded so interesting. I expected a straight sci-fi book but what I got was so much more. This book is well written and absolutely relevant to what is going on in the world today. This is a well-crafted story about how a truck accident put a small town into the public's eye. Decades ago, children in the town became born with double pupils and four arms, they kept to themselves, after working together to tackle the problem. Now, they are the unwilling subject of hatred and fear from most of the country.
Sound familiar? It should. And this is a book that should be read. Why do we fear what is different from us? Why is tolerance and understanding so hard for some. Through characters such as Joyce, the reporter, and Cody, the young man who was in the accident, we learn a lot about love and acceptance. Yes, this is a sci-fi story but it is intelligent, relevant and a must-read because it really resonated with me." - L. Ruetz, Amazon, 5-stars
