Book By: Karen Spears Zacharias
Adapted By: Paul R. Pierce
In remote Southern Appalachia, the mountain trails and hollows beckon young Maizee Hurd after she is left homeless by tragedy. A new life unfolds for Maizee as World War II looms. With only a small suitcase, a rag doll and her mama‘s Bible in hand, Maizee arrives in the isolated village of Christian Bend with its strange language, superstitions and tri-racial inhabitants. When the shock waves of war shatter the calm of the community, even the local healer, Burdy Luttrell, can‘t silence Maizee’s “voices” and a deaf-mute child named Rain knows far more than he lets on.
