After the officer has finished with his act of brutality, he simply leaves her there with a citation in her hand and a wave. Experiencing a myriad of emotions, the young woman must now decide if she should tell her husband what happened and let the authorities know.

On Cherry HIll, is a very fast-paced short-story about the victimization of a young woman on a lonely road by herself in the middle of the night. The very scenario that Ms. Kitt creates for her story is enough to bring out the goose bumps on a person's arms.
