The book takes you on a journey through the social changes in the American South. The plot is elaborate and highly emotional. It's not a typical detective story but rather a perfect mixture of historical fiction and a thriller. An isightful study of human relatioships and the influence of faith on people's lives. It's both tragic and cheering at the same time. I truly recommend it. I enyoyed the slow pace of reading and a specific accent of Mark Hammer which went perfectly with the story.
