"Young Terry Anderson lives in the small town of Grace. He asks honest questions--'If God wants me happy, why do I have to sit through church?'--and notices what adults sometimes miss--'Arthur Tucker, the local barber, never looks you in the eye. He looks you straight in the hair, sizing you up, wondering if you shouldn't have just a little more off the top.'
When Terry stumbles onto a startling secret that promises to right all wrongs, his life suddenly comes to a crossroads. Inspired by the godly example of an older brother and impassioned by his secret admiration for the prettiest girl in town, Terry knows the right thing to do. He just can't bring himself to do it.
Adventure worthy of a Mark Twain novel, a cast of colorful characters, and a mysterious illness await Terry as he tries to hide his guilt and control his fear of the consequences his actions might bring. A yearning for forgiveness and the hope of restoration lead him to even more amazing discoveries in a town called Grace."
