Welcome to Pilotville, Louisiana, 1927, an isolated outpost on the Mississippi River - a stilt village bounded by swampland to the horizon, accessible only by boat, an island of brotherly love in a sea of racism. Meet Hale Poser, a stranger with a bad hip who's come looking for his roots. He's a humble man, a righteous man, a miracle man.

In the swamp beyond the cypress and the tupelo, and veiled by Spanish moss, lies a lingering evil. For years it slept in dreadful isolation. Now comes Hale Poser, and it will sleep no more. It will rain down on Pilotville, it will rise up like a river, and nothing but a miracle can stop this awful flood.

A Christy Award finalist, Athol Dickson is a critically acclaimed author whose engrossing novels are equal parts Southern, inspirational, and mysterious.

    " This is a well-written book based on basic Christian teachings. This book is not preachey at all, it is a pure novel. the story is well told, even without the connotation. But it is a creative reminder of one of the basic tenets of Christian belief, that no matter where you are or what is going on, or how lost you are, God has a plan and a use for you. "

    " Interesting book about life in 1927 in the deep south where some things are segregated but in others areas not. About questioning your faith in hard times and learning who God really is. Good easy read that drew me into the characters. "
