The idyllic world of nine-year-old Abby McAndrews is transformed when a tragedy tears her family apart. Before the accident, her dad, Reverend John McAndrews, had all the answers, but now his questions and guilt threaten to destroy his family. Abby's fifteen-year-old brother, Matt, begins an angry descent as he acts out in dangerous ways. Her mother tries to hold her grieving family together, but when Abby's dad refuses to move on, the family is at a crossroads. Set in a small Midwestern town in 1970, Abby's heartbreaking remembrances are balanced by humor and nostalgia as her family struggles with-and ultimately celebrates-an authentic story of faith and life after loss.
