In a novel rich with heartache, deeply felt spirituality, and down-to-earth humour, a talented woman dares to face her demons - as a secret from the past threatens the love she's fought so hard to keep.

After her mama dropped out of her life, Myrtle Charmaine dropped her first name forever. But eleven-year-old Charmaine has her singing and her beloved Sunday school teacher, who takes her into her own God-fearing family. Yet Charmaine's out-of-the-ordinary odyssey has only just begun. . .

There are foster homes. . . a fateful encounter with a college man when she is barely fourteen. . . and gigs that range from the down-home sweetness of the Suds 'n' Strikes Forever bowling alley to the rhinestone dazzle of Atlantic City to the pure joy of singing gospel in church. And when a travelling preacher named Harlan who loves the Word - and her - arrives, Charmaine knows for sure God is smiling at her. Still, even on a countrywide crusade, her ineffable sense of longing lingers. It will lead her to paths Harlan would never approve of - if he knew! And to something that can end her sadness and give her the keys to healing.

Gospel singer Charmaine Hopewell has been searching for her mother since she was 11 years old, abandoned, and thrown into the foster care system. Now she is married to Harlan Hopewell, a beloved televangelist who has risen to popularity due to his disdain for psychology and psychiatry. Charmaine, despite their loving relationship, hides her own depression and search for meaning. Upon finding her mother in a mental institution, Charmaine realizes she must force Harlan into a decision: publicly support his wife and her needs or hide their new-found cross to ensure his rising popularity. Either way, Charmaine fears his ministry, and her own-both born through hardship and sacrifice-will be destroyed.

In Lisa Samson's moving novel, the wife of a popular televangelist discovers a family secret that threatens to destroy her marriage and her husband's ministry.
