Jerry Hanning is an Episcopal priest and private pilot. With his
nine-year-old daughter, Sadie, he migrates from the Midwest to
Tucson following the sudden death of his young wife. Coping with an
interior struggle over his call and his faith, Jerry searches for
new relationships and a sense of purpose. The rebuilding of his
life begins as he ministers on weekends in a small church near the
Arizona border of Mexico. It is there, especially in the
picturesque former mining towns of Tombstone and Bisbee, that Jerry
becomes involved in the lives and hopes of a small group of
sometimes quirky people. He also finds himself in the middle of the
struggle between ranchers, the Border Patrol, and humanitarians
over illegal immigration from Mexico. This sometimes brutal and
violent struggle reaches a climax in this story at an abandoned
airport near Tombstone. Issues of grief, transformation, ethical
life, and mystical spirituality are all confronted by Jerry and his
parishioners. The narrative action of the novel is confined to a
single season of Lent.
