David McGlynn's fiction debut takes on the inner lives of the zealous, their passions and desires, and the ways religious faith is both the compass for navigating daily life and the force that makes ordinary life impossible. From the coastal highways of Southern California to the bayous of Houston, Texas, the stories take place against the backdrop of disaster--a landslide, a fire, a drowning, a hurricane--as the characters question whether faith illuminates the world or leaves them isolated within it.
