The Mathesons have always been the cornerstone of the Mission Grove, North Carolina community. But deep wounds start to blur that idyllic image of the preacher's family, when they can no longer hide the pain of past events. Their story is an adventure that casts its hooks in several engaging directions at once, eventually reeling us back in-to the core of the family. They chase after hope, but must first come face to face with the very things that threaten to destroy it. Family secrets must be brought into the light. Dangerous missions must be carried out and fears overcome.
