Summary
Widower Will Barrett of Linwood, North Carolina, and Allison Vaught--two alienated souls both questioning their faith in God--together heal one another and return to a Christian community that rejects their methods of healing
Summary
Widower Will Barrett, with very little interest in money and much concern for all the unhappiness in the world, inherits forty million dollars from his late wife. Will, who has some episodes of blacking out, is drawn into a rewakening, "a second coming," with the help of a young escapee from a mental hospital. She becomes for him the light at the end of a long, dark tunnel. Some strong language. Sequel to : "The Last Gentleman" (RC 11597). Bestseller
