From the author of Bitterroot Landing--hailed by the Richmond State as a splendid contribution to Southern literature--comes a stunning story woven around the themes of innocence and miracles in everyday life. When the granddaughter of the founder of an isolated religious community in South Carolina is discovered to be pregnant, no amount of punishment will make her recant her statement that a holy child grows inside her.

What a great tale of acceptance, forgiveness and redemption!

This was beautifully written, and a very unique coming of age story. It is a book that you could read every few years and discover something new about yourself. The ending was surprisingly joyous and one that I still think about every so often - bringing a smile to my face.
