Women in pain are drawn to The House of Light in rural Ponca, Oklahoma--refuge of Abyssinia Jackson, M.D. It is here that three women will find strength and regain control of their lives. Vennie, an over-worked and disrespected "day girl," comes to Abyssinia with pained and tired feet. Pearline is a buxom beauty who bears the scars and bruises from her jealous ex-husband's constant beating. The independent Zenobia, an impassioned blues singer will learn to open herself to new friendships and possibly even love from a man on the other side of town. Filled with inspiring, lyrical prose and honest characters, House of Light is the joyous story of a community brought together by love and decency and bound by the ideal of helping others help themselves.
