Sax Henry left home at seventeen to escape his father’s abuse, leaving his mother and younger sister, Shelby, to fend for themselves. Now, twenty-eight years later, both parents are dead, and guilt compels him to find his sister and make peace. His quest takes him to the south Louisiana town of Les Barbes where he hopes to find Adele Woodmore, the wealthy woman Shelby once worked for.
Les Barbes is in crisis as a number of people have collapsed and have been taken to the emergency room. Health officials determine that someone has put cyanide in the food bar and bottled water at Marcotte’s Market. Ten victims are expected to recover. Six others are dead. Sax wonders if he made a mistake coming here, but his fear of dying isn’t nearly as strong as his desire to find peace. Mrs. Woodmore turns out to be his most formidable obstacle. Or is she? Little does he know that he has a divine appointment awaiting him that will propel him toward the God he bitterly resents. A God who has also been in relentless pursuit—of him.
Based on Psalm 34:14, “Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it,” this final book in the series is rich with the Cajun flavors of south Louisiana and illustrates what it means to find true peace in an uncertain world.
