Genre: Inspirational, Historical Fiction

RT Rating

Morris weaves together not just a story but also ideas that cause us to contemplate our beliefs. This sequel in the Singing River series keeps the reader focused and anticipating what's to come. A lush portrayal of characters from different denominations and lifestyles is the glue that binds the reader to the story. However, such a vast array of characters allows for only superficial connections for the reader.

Seventeen-year-old Lanie Freeman certainly has her share of
responsibility. With her father in jail for manslaughter and her mother deceased, she is fighting to keep her siblings together any way she can. Forced to be mother, father and provider, Lanie is weary but takes comfort in her relationship with God and her poems.

With the arrival of an interim pastor, the community is in for many changes. When the town is split in half by the actions of this motorcycle-riding, Billy Graham-preaching minister, some try to resist him and restore "normalcy" as the divided community struggles to survive.
