Two journalists in a small Alabama town discover a mysterious book that makes them confront the past. If you had the power to amend choices you made in the past, would you-even if it changed everything? Mercy Land has made some unexpected choices for a young woman in the 1930s. The sheltered daughter of a traveling preacher, she chooses to leave her rural community to move to nearby Bay City on the warm, gulf-waters of southern Alabama. There she finds a job at the local paper and spends seven years making herself indispensible to old Doc Philips, the publisher and editor. Then she gets a frantic call at dawn-it's the biggest news story of her life, and she can't print a word of it. Doc has come into possession of a curious book that maps the lives of everyone in Bay City-decisions they've made in the past, and how those choices affect the future. Mercy and Doc are consumed by the mystery locked between the pages-Doc because he hopes to right a very old wrong, and Mercy because she wants to fulfill the book's strange purpose. But when a mystery from Mercy's past arrives by train, she begins to understand that she will have to make choices that will deeply affect everyone she loves-forever. "A tremendously well-written tale. River Jordan is a truly gifted author. Highly recommended." - Davis Bunn, best-selling author
