About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Jackie Weger and author Jerri Hines comes a powerful southern saga. Set against the backdrop of World War II, this gripping page-turning mystery will have you reading through the night.

 

Sin is in the air…

 

August 1943. The revival has come to the small Appalachian Mountain town Oak Flatt. The gospel is preached, and hymns fill the air, reawakening hope for those crowded beneath the big-flap tent. Cady Blue is there, praying for the soldiers fighting in the war raging overseas, for those less fortunate, and for the bells to cease—bells no one hears but her.

 

In a town where most consider her a simpleton, Cady Blue has a strange sense of foreboding when secrets threaten the very soul of the town. A missing child. A mysterious death. Clandestine love affairs… Whispers abound, splitting the mountain people and the townsfolk further apart. Cady Blue finds herself torn between the two sides when she discovers an attraction to the town war hero, Matt Pritchard.

 

Despite assertions that the threat is in the past, Cady Blue realizes that something is still very, very wrong. She can feel a lingering evil that threatens her chance for happiness. And she must uncover the deadly truth before it’s too late.

About the author

USA Today bestselling author Jackie Weger has been writing romance novels off and on for thirty years. When she’s writing, she’s anchored in a tiny room with a desk, a chair, and an annoying cat. When not writing, blogging, chatting with fans, or just being flat-out lazy, she’s hanging out on a fishing pier, soaking up sunshine and reading a good book. For many a year she traveled our good earth by foot, boat, bus, train, plane, or pickup, and sometimes a mule—but today she only gets as far as Walmart.

A Southern gal with a fascination for history, bestselling author Jerri Hines writes historical suspense fiction and historical romance. Jerri believes in love and the power it holds, the reason she adds romance to her stories. She has lived the last thirty years near Boston with her Yankee husband.
