“There”, says Alice Howard to Reverend Stephen Drew, just after her baptism and just before she is killed by her husband, who then turns the gun on himself. Stephen, tortured by the cryptic finality of that short utterance, feels his faith in god slipping away. He is saved from despair by meeting Heather Laurent. Heather offers herself as a mentor to Alice’s daughter, Katie, and a shoulder for Stephen.
But then the state’s attorney begins to suspect that Alice’s husband may not have killed himself - and discovers that Alice had secrets only her minister knew. See on E-Library
