Over twenty-two years have gone by since Reverend Forester sent men out to hunt for wives. Now with all the single young men in his snake-handling church congregation ready to start families, he organizes ather hunt. But times have changed in twenty years. The men aren't prepared for the way the world outside their sheltered community does things. And when one man finds and falls in love with a spunky Mormon girl, his world is about to be turned up-side-down. *** It has been five years since Elizabeth Franklin's lifesaving brain surgery. The connections she shares with her adopted family fill the void in her life since the murder of her father. But the bond she shares with five year old Melinda Lakes borders on the mysterious. *** Everyone has connections in their life; be it family, friends, religion, or work; it influences and directs our actions.
