Even today the KKK makes the news with its ideology of hate. But imagine you are living in 1932...

In the segregated little town of Bumblebee North Carolina. Late one night Stella sees nine white-robed figures surrounding a burning cross in the woods out beyond the pond.  What's got the Klan worked up now?  Well it seems there are some "Negroes" planning to register to vote, and Stella's Papa is one of them! 
If you like reading first hand accounts of how others got through very trying times, I think you will cheer for Stella by Starlight.
