At age 28, author Mary Diane Goin met her birth mother for the first time. What unfolded was a remarkable story of courage and sacrifice that can finally be told. Darlene grew up in a mill village as the abused child of a southern preacher. When a young man breezed through their little town on his way up north, the sixteen-year old followed on the promise of love and a new life. Her dream soon turned into a nightmare when she discovered that she had been baited for the mob's prostitution ring in New York. Darlene bravely escaped and made it home, only to face the cruel gossip of town folks, an angry father who refused to let her into the house and--a surprise pregnancy. She lived out of a basement and worked third shift in a grueling cotton mill, all the while keeping her pregnancy a secret. Abandoned by the baby's father and her own family, Darlene desperately tried to figure out what to do. She ran out of time on April 14, 1955.
