A story set in the 1930’s Kentucky after the repeal of prohibition. When a drifter is buried in potter’s field next to the McFee, family distillery things start getting strange. Some people believe the drifter, who had the power of healing, was a second coming of Christ. Others were not sure, but they did notice changes taking place in their community. William McFee wants to be a reporter and was not having much success to get his stories published. The drifter’s grave starts getting a large number of visitors and some strange things begin to happen it the town. William starts to investigate; he fines some facts about what his father did during prohibition and the death of his younger brother. He starts to write stories able what he uncovers and gets them published in a Louisville newspaper, which starts all kinds of things to happen.
The story has romance, intrigue, family problems, problems with the KKK and religious issues. A healing of the McFee family and a reopening of the family distillery take place. The community heals and answers are found too many questions.
The book is very easy reading, many facts about the time period and the author gives a good description of the days after prohibition and life of those living in the depression.
