Violet Intrigue is Book One in The Rock Ridge Trilogy.
Once upon a time, I loved playing baseball in the yard with my dad. I loved the crack of the bat as it bit the ball and sent it soaring out past the cornfields. I loved the way he lifted me over his head and spun me after I'd rounded home plate. But once upon a time was a long time ago; and now all of those things are dead. The corn. My father. Even baseball.
