Sex -- Fiction, Faith -- Fiction, Families -- Fiction
Esther Cain is living on her own for the first time, trying to make sense of a childhood as a missionary's daughter in Alaska, a past that was defined by prophecy, visions, and the voice of God as interpreted by her father. Alex Fuller is studying medicine and muddling through a relationship with his first boyfriend. But when Alex and Esther are drawn back to the mountains of South Carolina where they briefly knew each other as children, they must each confront questions of faith, sexuality, and the painful ties of family.
