IS REPAYING A DEBT OF GRATITUDE WORTH THE COST OF SANITY?
Ben Bramley must answer that question when a fall day phone call beckons him back to the farm of his youth, to the land that scarred him to the bone. If he rescinds his resolution of lifetime avoidance, he will be returning to the postcard mountain hamlet of Abundance where townsfolk are long on judgment but short on sympathy. Clueless that their black-or-white world of Southern Baptist status quo is in jeopardy should Ben decide to unload his repository of dark secrets and completely unravel the pious fabric of the close-knit community, which includes the handful of those who care for him most. Complex relationships fuel a story in which hypocrisy is an art form, change is impossible, and to love someone is to give them the power to destroy.
