Since his wife's unexpected death, Neil Sadler's thoughts have returned again and again to the Ohio town he left twenty-seven years ago on the heels of a tragedy. Now that place is calling him back in the midst of this second, more personal tragedy. Returning home brings Neil back to Mary Beeken, a childhood friend with whom he'd been close while growing up. But their relationship was broken and left unresolved when Mary's family faced that tragic event of long ago. Neil has stepped out of the normal flow of his life to try to make sense of things again. Will reconnecting with his past lead to rediscovering the validity of his childhood faith?
