About this product
- DescriptionFrom the New York Times bestselling author of Prayers for Sale comes a powerful vel about the intersection of redemption, forgiveness, and love. . . .On a spring afteron in 1920, Swandyke a small town near Colorado's Tenmile Range is changed forever. Just moments after four o'clock, a large split of sw separates from Jubilee Mountain high above the tiny hamlet and hurtles down the rocky slope, enveloping everything in its path.Meet the residents whose lives this tragedy touches: Lucy and Dolly Patch, two sisters long estranged by a shocking betrayal. Joe Cobb, Swandyke's only black resident, whose love for his daughter forces him to flee Alabama. Then there's Grace Foote, who hides secrets and scandal that belie her genteel facade. And Minder Evans, a Civil War veteran who considers cowardice his greatest sin. Finally, there's Essie Swball, born Esther Schnable to conservative Jewish parents, who w works as a prostitute and hides her child's parentage from the world. Fate, chance, and perhaps divine providence all collide in the everyday lives of these people. And ultimately, one is without sin, one's soul is whiter than sw, and one is without the need for forgiveness. A quintessential American voice and a writer of exquisite historical detail, Sandra Dallas illuminates the resilience of the human spirit in her newest vel.
