Maura vowed never to go to Granger, Ohio, again. However, when events cause her to go back, she must confront the frustrations she wanted to leave behind - a husband who disregarded her, worshipers she couldn’t please, and a God that she believes took away everything she ever loved.
Expecting to just act as a support for Maura through her watershed with faith, Nick finds that his emotions for her actually never stopped. Now, somehow, he must confess to the blunders he made with her, and must discover a way to redeem himself.
Nick and Maura seem as if they might finally patch-up their fragmented relationship and come together again, as man and wife. Yet, Maura has one more confidence to share with Nick before they can move forward. It’s what eventually pushed her to leave him six years earlier, and the one thing that threatens to destroy the flimsy trust they’ve started to build.
Throughout the story the stress and conflict keeps mounting. The tale is perhaps a depiction of how love for a partner is meant to last a lifetime. I was enchanted with this novel and appreciated the transformations that took place, not merely between Maura and Nick, but also between the residents and the worshippers.
