While this is a deeply satisfying end to the trilogy, readers cannot help but want more from this extremely talented author. Though Jessilyn is strong-willed and determined, she often acts without thinking (like many of us) and struggles to see God at work, which makes her very relatable. The intensity of the racial tensions portrayed in the 1930s-set story will cause the reader to pause and examine their own prejudices.
Jessilyn Lassiter’s romance with Luke Talley is interrupted by racial tensions when African-American doctor Tal Pritchett comes to town and gets involved with Jessilyn’s friend, Gemma Teague. For six years, Jessilyn has witnessed the consequences of intense hatred. After a young boy is lynched, she’s engulfed by anger. She wants vengeance and cannot understand those who tell her to turn it over to God. When faced with the opportunity to save the life of a Klan member, will Jessilyn help?
