Nora, Nora Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Nora, Nora

Peyton is not ready to share her widowed father with anyone, especially a barely remembered cousin who just rolled into town, who smokes cigarettes, and drives a pink Thunderbird. However, her father seems to like Nora well enough, and she does make for good conversation at the Losers Club. Prim and proper, Aunt Augusta hates her of course, which raises Nora slightly in Peyton's esteem. Maybe Nora is just what quiet Lytton, Georgia needs right now.

The household changes with Nora's energy, and when she takes a job teaching the first integrated honors class at the local high school, it looks as if she might stay on forever. But soon it becomes clear that something is troubling Nora deeply, and Peyton tries to find out what it is.It has to be something from her past that bothers her. When the shocking truth does come to light, it stuns the residents of their small segregated town. It teaches Peyton the enormous cost of loving-and necessity of doing it anyway.
