Polishing Jade is set in the 1960’s in rural Mississippi, where the secrets are as sticky as the jams sold at Taylor’s General Store. Jade Gentry is a young girl whose past will not control her future even if it cost her everything. Gripping and suspenseful, Jade will leave you sighing when she sighs, running when she runs, and celebrating when she is triumphant!

Meet an odd cast of characters, including kindly Miss Ellen, a superstitious woman who plants corn in front of her living room window, Renée, a peculiar woman who instinctively knows the deeply hidden secrets of Jade, and a school teacher who begins the process of Polishing Jade.
