Image of The Road to Testament

The charming Christian town of Testament is filled with likable characters who readers will wish they could join for a glass of sweet tea and small talk. Will is particularly complex in his desire for the simplicity of small-town life, and it is his past that proves most interesting.

Ashlynne Rothschild is used to being judged for her family’s wealth and the expectation that she is a spoiled princess. But that doesn’t keep her feelings from being hurt when she arrives in Testament, N.C., to work at the local paper and her new boss, William Decker, goes out of his way to show his disapproval. Falling in love with him is not part of her plan. Neither is discovering a devastating secret about the high school football star and another about a violent event in the town’s slaveholding past.
