WEEKEND OF APRIL 23, 2015    VOLUME 2 ISSUE 30
EYE OF GOD

 

In a small Oklahoma town, an innocent girl, Ainsley, marries a just-released convict with whom she's corresponded for three years. Jack's never told her why he went to jail, and with his newfound religion he says it doesn't matter: Providence has seen to it that he would marry a good woman and raise a family. Interwoven with the above plot is a future storyline: A young girl has been found dead in a nearby lake. A fourteen-year-old named Tom witnessed the murder and has become mute because of it. Or, did he do it?
