Sarah Colton. Tilt 68. Asheville, N.C.: Water Tower Books, 2007.

Louisa Ellington grew up in a traditional southern family, but at 18 years old she leaves home to attend Holy Trinity Women’s College (based on Raleigh’s St. Mary’s College). Once there, Louisa and her classmates face all the challenges of normal college life, but they do so amidst the turmoil of the late-1960s. The women struggle with personal and community changes wrought by the arrival of drugs on their campus and the widespread availability of birth-control pills, and they also confront wider political, religious, and generational issues related to the Civil Rights movement and the Vietnam war.
