A tragedy has forced thirty-year-old Daniel Hollister back to the bosom of his family to deal with plaguing doubts concerning his vocation as a priest. But Valley City, Minnesota, is no longer the safe haven of his childhood, for life has dealt some harsh blows. His grandfather has suffered a heart attack, his parents have separated, and his father is harboring a painful secret about the Hollister heritage. It's not exactly the perfect place to contemplate a life-altering decision, but it's the best place he has.
Diamonds in the Grass is a joyous journey of discovery...where the grass isn't always green but the diamonds of laughter manage to sparkle anyway. It's a journey where Daniel learns that things aren't always decided by chance or even by signs. Most often, they're simply decided, period. And he himself holds the key.
