When an itinerate Baptist preacher arrived with his baby daughter and a wife lost on the trail, there was no one prepared to suspect what lurid secrets and heartbreak he might be concealing. As the preacher sets his sights against those who might oppose him, the names, reputations, even the very lives of the good people of Cloverdale may not be spared.
Yet in the midst of the machinations of a mad man, virtue and valor can persist. The Thing with Feathers is known to fly through wars, depressions, and natural disasters. But will the Marshall clan and the good people of Cloverdale find it in time?
I enjoyed reading this book. It was interesting from start to finish. I really found the way the charters interact with each other fascinating. I found that I could easily relate to them, and that they are refreshingly, real. I am looking forward to reading more of Anne's work.
Defiantly a 5 star read.
