Something has shattered the spirit of the people on the shores of Lake Koshkonong. Eric Redfeather, returning from the Reservation to make a new home and Jenna Taylor, pastor of the local church, delve into the dark history that created the community’s emotional prison. If only they can find the key.
They meet new neighbors and learn of Eric’s Native American mother, Carissa, adopted by a gangland couple from Chicago, the threat of a ‘hit’ put out on Carissa and Eric when he was born, and the role the Lake Koshkonong church played in a cover-up, causing members to become suspicious and reclusive.
Withthe stories of his heritage, Eric wins the hearts of the children and the community. And, through his and Jenna’s love for one another, they are able to bring her flock back to the church, filled with forgiveness.
