A tour de force by the author of the compelling Early from the Dance and Ruin Creek. Returning to the South of his roots, Payne seamlessly and gracefully weaves two brilliantly engrossing stories - one contemporary, the other set during the Civil War - which converge at the end of the book. This passionate and elegant story is realistic with supernatural overtones - funny, heartbreaking, hard-hitting yet gentle. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow

A new book by Frederick Buechner is always eagerly awaited, and this definitive collection of his sermons challenges us as to what it means to be human and how God is revealed in everyday life. Buechner started his preaching life at Phillips Exeter Academy in 1959, and though he never again had his own pulpit, over the years he was asked to preach in places as varied as the little church in Rupert, Vermont to the National Cathedral in Washington. In this remarkable collection, one is struck once again by the compassion and wisdom of this extraordinary writer. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
