Ginny Walker is not like other girls. Hiding out in the badlands of southern Louisiana, this genius girl-prodigy and her fugitive mother, Sarah, live precariously. But the law is not the only threat. Both of them dangle beneath a giant question mark—a fatal genetic legacy that may (or may not) strike. Laid bare under such catastrophic shoes about to drop, how does one plow through an average day? As you might’ve guessed, Ginny turns to preaching the gospel. After all, she’s gifted. She’s got fire & brimstone. Healing hands. And somehow, the full text of the bible committed to memory. In the pursuit of soul saving, these gifts are invaluable. To Isaac Thigpen of Christ’s Road Show Tent Revival, Lil’ Gin Walker’s talents are gold. When she preaches—the collection plate doth runneth over. Thigpen has big plans for which he’ll fight if necessary. And he’ll surely bring down hellfire on anyone who gets in the w ay—to make sure that his golden girl-preacher goose keeps the cash comin’. Things may seem hopeless. But this special (and highly motivated) girl isn’t about to leave her fate up to chance. How will Gin and her mother survive their gods and demons?
