On Bernadine Brown's fifty-second birthday she received an
unexpected giftâ€”she caught her husband, Leo, cheating with
his secretary. She was hurtâ€”angry, tooâ€”but she didn't cry
woe is me. Nope, she hired herself a top-notch lawyer and
ended up with a cool $275 million. Having been raised in the
church, she knew that when much is given much is expected,
so she asked God to send her a purpose.
The purpose turned out to be a town: Henry Adams, Kansas,
one of the last surviving townships founded by freed slaves
after the Civil War. The failing town had put itself up for
sale on the Internet, so Bernadine bought it.
Trent July is the mayor, and watching the town of his birth
slide into debt and foreclosure is about the hardest thing
he's ever done. When the buyer comes to town, he's impressed
by her vision, strength, and the hope she wants to offer not
only to the town and its few remaining residents, but to a
handful of kids in desperate need of a second chance.
Not everyone in town wants to get on board though; they
don't want change. But Bernadine and Trent, along with his
first love, Lily Fontaine, are determined to preserve the
town's legacy while ushering in a new era with ties to its
unique past and its promising future.
