"Amazing Grace is a very unpretentious book-episodes in the life of a small town in W. Tennessee, related by a man, never overtly characterized but somehow growing before our eyes, in a style as clear as plate glass-glass beyond whic a reality glows, comic, sad, tender. Making no pretensions, the book accomplishes its own small, but authentic, miracle. For if we can ever see even a small segment of life clearly-that is, offered with the self-denying artistry and veracity whidh we find here-such a smimple segment, merely because its nature seems suddenly illuminated, will probably move us. And because it is life, it may well become a permanent possession. At least that has been true for me, who read it first in an early edition, some twelve or fifteen years ago." Rober Penn Warrent

When Cooper Coghlan arrives in Ireland with the cremains of his grandfather, Finn Coghlan, he has one instruction: Let my ashes blow in the wind. Mesmerized by his romantic vision of Ireland, and in those landmarks—Waterford, Youghal, Cork, Killarney, the Ring of Kerry, Tralee, Kenmare, Dingle—the fate of the Irish that Finn Coghlan talked of magically brings Cooper and Kathleen O’Reilly, a public relations specialist, together. Yet, there is a truth between the two of them that not even the enchanting tale of Finn McCool and Sally Cavanaugh, or of Patrick the Believer, can resolve. For that, Cooper must use the one gift bestowed on him as a child by his grandfather—Bogmeadow’s wish.

Sequel to the award-winning MOTHER OF RAIN. When it is a healing they need, the people at Christian Bend, Tennessee, turn to one woman—Burdy Luttrell. Melungeon by birth, Burdy learned the therapeutic properties of roots from the women in her family. When Burdy discovers that Lincoln Memorial University is hosting a class on healing roots, she persuades her friend, Mayne, to drive her up. The two women make a fateful stop at Laidlow Pharmacy at Bean Station where an armed gunman executes three people and critically injures another. Burdy—the woman able to cure others—is now fighting for her life at University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville. Karen Spears Zacharias has crafted a mesmerizing novel of tragedy and transformation, a beautiful rendering of fact and fiction, and a tenderhearted narrative of survivors and the battles they face.
