In the southeastern Kentucky town of Pine Gap, coal is the economy, faith is the community, and comings and goings are few and far between.

This is home for Jamie Eskill and her family. Her father’s life is in the mines, her mother has seldom been more than an hour from town, and her sister has twins that need her constant care.

Jamie may want more from life than Pine Gap can offer, but leaving is complicated. When she gets her ticket out, she’s not sure whether to use it—until a disaster changes everything.
