The year is 1898. The town is Sedalia, Missouri, population 15,000. Cornelia Looney and her husband, James H. Looney, have just become the parents of Shannon, a healthy baby boy. From that day forward, Cornelia keeps a splendid record of Shannon's life, painstakingly written in white ink on the charcoal-gray pages of an album.

Many years later that album is discovered by her grandson Douglas S. Looney. As a prominent writer for Sports Illustrated, contributor to The New York Times and other publications, and coauthor of the bestselling book Under the Tarnished Dome, Looney recognized a gem when he saw one. The story his grandmother Cornelia told is now a book to be read and cherished by all who have ever been moved by love and loss and love found yet again.
