Three friends since childhood return to their hometown of Sibboleth Something is wrong.
It s a fight between good and evil.
Just couldn t get into this novel too mystical for me.
I finished this awhile back but it was very good Had me involved in the story right away I would recommend it.
I started reading this while working in the Library Book store and brought it home to finish, not because it was good, but because I was curious as to how this was going to finish It is a very Christian Allegory with God walking the streets, and an angel writing notes about what is happening The story centers on three childhood friends Nehemiah and Billy Trust and their friend Trice Trice seems to have second sight or premonitions Nehemiah leaves his home town of Shibboleth to go work in Washington DC After 12 years, Shibboleth begins to fade away Bobby and Trice bring Nehemiah back to help save the town Eventually there is a fight between good and evil sprits and all sorts of strange occurrences weird.
River Jordan crafts her words in this novel like a fine needle creating the wings of an angel In fact, it s told by one of God s angels in an with the finesse of a prophet The people of Shibboleth must restore life to the town before the good and the good people are consumed God walks with His narrator whistling as old friends, foes, new friends and heros work in a time capsule.
Is it just about the tiny town of Shibboleth Or is it actually about mankind
