I once was lost, but now I’m found. This is so much more than just lyrics to a song that we sing about God’s amazing Grace. This too can be applied to people returning home just like the prodigal son who chose to demand what he thought was rightfully his and go live his life the best way he knew how. Such is true when we are granted access into the life of Memory Patterson who in the previous book Strongholds was introduced to us as Elaine. Memory, a woman who is actually 70 years young has been on the run ever since she decided that “getting over” on people even those closest to her would be her claim to fame. Claim to fame is a little farfetched, but in her mind and way of seeing things, she knows that she has done wrong and sees absolutely no point in sticking around for the aftermath.
But for Memory, as fate would have it and as the saying goes; “you can only do wrong for so long before it catches up with you.” The trail of wrong that Memory has left has now run out. With someone hot on her trail, and her good fortune of a good Christian woman has lost her will to be a Good Samaritan, where else would Memory turn to but none other than to the church that Memory realized that she needed to stop running and lay down her burdens. Little does she know though, her First Lady, Johnnie Mae (Taylor) Landris knows more about Memory before Memory can begin to weave a web that never ends. And has plenty in store for her.
