Blackwell North Amer
Lily Connor has spent the past six months in her native Texas at her father's bedside, watching him die. When her close friend Bishop Lamount Spencer calls to offer her a job as interim pastor for a wealthy Boston parish that has just lost its priest, she leaps at the opportunity. The beloved rector died suddenly of a heart attack brought on by insulin shock: the parishioners require a compassionate, experienced leader to guide them through this time of change. Though Lily is a tentmaker - an ordained priest who makes a living outside the church - she is an old hand at filling in for parishes that are temporarily without a rector.
Soon after Lily takes over the job however, she begins to suspect both the official version of the priest's death and those who insist on its truth. As she relentlessly pursues the deadly secrets hidden deep within the heart of the parish, Lily discovers that she may pay for her role of truth-seeker with her own life.
