"In the small fictional town of Algoma, Illinois, summer's usually plodding pace overlays the heat and complexities of the human heart. What slowly emerges is a series of inextricably connected secrets that occupies the curiosity and attention of the town's pastor. A drama of death and redemption play out with legal implications and pastoral solutions."--Publisher description.
