After the murder of her mother and father during the Indian Removal of 1838, Maggie’s left to raise the young’uns. The last thing she needs to deal with is some know-it-all circuit rider preacher with his fancy talk and city-fide ways.
Pastor Obadiah Hawkins is sure God has called him to these mountains. He counts the lonely days until his fiancé, Constance, can join him in reaching these hard-headed folks. The most troublesome of them
is that superstitious, backwoods woman, Maggie Mullins. The Evil Eye? Ghosts? Spells?
Will Christmas on the isolated mountain be the failure of Obadiah Hawkins and the end of his ministry?
