Lois Barker is happily climbing the ladder to success in the newspaper business when her close friend at the paper suddenly dies and Lois finds herself the heir to the small-town paper he had just purchased. Determined to honor her friend and urged by an unknown voice that says, 'Go,' Lois relocates to Green, Louisiana - a far cry from the Ohio town where she's been working.

One review compared Lois to the biblical Jonah, running from God, and I found that a fitting metaphor. Christie does a wonderful job creating the character of Lois, making her likable and believable, and showing a spiritual transformation slowly.

As the novel progresses, you'll enjoy getting to know the varied and sundry residents of Green; uncover the mystery of power in the town; and wonder, will Lois stay? I'll leave it to you to find out. This is a novel definitely worth reading!
