Takes the reader into what feels like the world of a teen-age girl trying to make her peace with the world & with God. At the Church of Fire & Brimstone, Grandpa Herman makes the rules for everyone, & everyone obeys, or else. But even in this isolated community where it seems nearly everything is forbidden, temptation occasionally touches the congregation . . . & for Ninah, temptation comes in the form of her prayer partner, James. She soon finds herself pregnant. She fears the wrath of Grandpa Herman, the church members, & God Himself. But the events that follow show Ninah that God's ways are mysterious.

The young protagonist's 'surprise' pregnancy came about from the Church and her parents failure to communicate properly to her about the birds and bees and her misinterpretation of the "Rapture" the members of the church were constantly seeking.
There is death and sadness, happiness and love, events that occur for the better and worse, but the entire story is beautifully written. I couldn't put the book down, the story line was so interesting and didn't want to wait to see 'what happened next.'
This book would be a very good read for anyone looking for a good story that emphasizes family love and devotion in the face of life's hardships.
If you like this novel, I would highly recommend "Bitterroot Landing" by the same author.
