Can Coreen and her mother survive the sins and lies that linger after death?
Growing up in a coal mining camp is difficult enough. But, when Coreen Shell's abusive father makes a promise for her thirteenth birthday that could destroy what s left of her life, she resorts to a desperate prayer to a God she's not sure exists. The next day, a flood washes through the coal camp, like a backhanded answer to her prayer. Coreen, her mother, and her crippled grandmother next door must climb the mountain to find refuge in a nearby church. Then, news of a murder changes everything, in a way Coreen never imagined.
Now the real question is: Will Coreen and her damaged, dysfunctional family conquer all the lies, secrets, hardship, and hatred ... or be destroyed by them?
