For twenty years, beautiful and vain Candida Armstrong has been in an adulterous relationship with the very married, Deacon Josiah Hess. Out of respect for the deacon, the community has turned a blind eye. Then a new man comes to town and Sweetberry is smitten. The affair progresses and Luther proposes marriage. Tragically, the unthinkable happens. Deacon Hess beats him to death on the church ground. Sweetberry is thrown into the abyss, and her journey to redemption is hindered by the ghost of Luther and the threat of insanity. $0.99 on Kindle.
