A young pastor is hired in a hurry by email. The church secretary has been warned before about a certain sloppiness in details. When the pastor steps off the bus it's immediately clear that this is not the person that New Hope intended to hire.This is a woman.It's only a temporary assignment for the summer, yet it's this pastor's first chance to do the one thing that she studied so long and hard to do. For the time being she is allowed to stay, but things are not so easy at New Hope. Some years ago there was a theft of funds at the church. The culprit was found, convicted, and sent to prison. Now he's back in this small town and things are really heating up.Some people are convinced that the true thief was never really found. They want the new pastor to find out the truth. But what if the truth is uglier than what they're prepared to face?Being a pastor isn't easy at the best of times, but now it becomes very difficult.
