“This book follows two people on a quest -- elderly Sarah longs for life the way it used to be, and young Bill wants to be healed of sins -- and, all the while, they are being followed by someone seeking bitter revenge. A beautiful story about love in all of its forms.”
-- Sam Barker, Summer's Stories, Kendallville, IN
