This was a good novel, loaned to me by a friend (thank you, Sarah). Without sharing any "spoilers," I found it interesting that the main character(a Baptist preacher) was writing a book on Roger Williams, who happens to be one of my ancestors. Another character goes off to seminary to prepare for ministry, and attends the "seminary in Rochester, New York"--which is my alma mater.
