In the coastal town of Sea Norton, England, distrust between locals and a group of Gypsy-like "travellers" threatens to erupt into deadly violence. Until Jake, a local handyman, uses the power of God's love to unite the community divided by fear and prejudice. Jake draws from the same timeless theme as Fr. Girzone's Joshua.

This was really great! I knew going into it that it was "inspirational" and right away you can tell that Jake is a person who is emulating Jesus. It is the way the conflict is written between the "gypsies" and the town people that is so compelling. I read it in one sitting and really liked the messages of forgiveness and tolerance. Here are sparse words that really pack a punch. Murray is a good storyteller.
