The deep undercurrents of life in a small Southern town
burst to the surface in this suspenseful tale of passion
and prophecy. Sixteen-year-old Mattie comes to Jexville as
a mail-order bride, and finds a quiet, deeply religious
community so cautious that even dancing is frowned upon.
Soon Mattie finds herself playing a part in a long-
awaited, stunningly executed plan of revenge.
