“Blue Spooner was only two days old -- or so the doctor guessed -- when she was left in an iron kettle on Hannah Spooner's doorstep with no clues to her origins except the worn quilt she was wrapped in. Ten years later, Blue is a bright, hard-working farm girl who loves her home and the woman who has raised her, but she is still secretly waiting for her real mother to come back for her. When the editor of the town's weekly paper asks Blue to fill in for their regular gossip columnist, she sees it as an opportunity to do some sleuthing into her own past. True Colors brings rural 1950s Vermont and the characters of Blue's community vividly to life.”
