The townsfolk in Pleasant Cross, North Carolina, carry a healthy suspicion of the three generations of Ivy women. Each Ivy woman has been blessed with the gift of Knowing, but it's eighteen-year-old Tessa and her unique powers that cause folks to raise their eyebrows. When Rev. Renfrow and his son, Sterling, roll into town with their Airstream trailer and special brand of faith, things will never be the same, as a tragic secret is uncovered and the Ivy women learn the true meaning of kinship and hope.

You trust that Lynne Hinton isn't going to take you to an awful place and then leave you there and she does not. Hinton tells a gentle story, a difficult story, but you know that, in the end, all things will work together for good, and they do.

Sweet story but utterly forgettable

Start out great to be a sweet little-town story with the interesting and magical power from the Ivy women family. The story is sweet and warm;perfectly for summer reading. A bit rushing to the end for too many joining happnenings. Good vocabularies this author used.
