From the novel: “Everything must be reconciled eventually.”
Caddo Parish, 1913. On an October morning, a Klansman confronts seventeen-year-old David Walker at a hidden oxbow lake where he has gone to hunt. David accidentally kills the man and hides the crime. His determination to protect his family from reprisal drives him far from home and into manhood.
Shreveport, 1927. Cargie (rhymes with Margie) Barre and Mae Compton are two vastly different young women, but both are defying convention to reach for their dreams. The men in Cargie’s and Mae’s lives help and hinder them in more ways than one. After years in hiding, David Walker finally resurfaces, and we discover the past is never as far from the present as it seems.

What happens when a woman finds friendship she has not sought and answers to questions she has not asked? What does it cost to save another? ALL IN explores these questions when an unlikely friendship develops between two women, distance cousins, who could not have less in common. Meet Cami Taylor. Author. Alias. Queen of reinvention. And Kate Davis. Suburban socialite. Junior League mom. Christian. The words of author Cami Taylor transport the reader from New York’s Upper West Side to an Albuquerque casino, and from suburban Phoenix to suburban Dallas. But the volumes she does not write testify to the hunger and hope within her heart.
