About this title


The deep undercurrents of life in a small Southern town burst to the surface in this suspenseful tale of passion and prophecy. Sixteen-year-old Mattie comes to Jexville as a mail-order bride, and finds a quiet, deeply religious community so cautious that even dancing is frowned upon. Soon Mattie finds herself playing a part in a long-awaited, stunningly executed plan of revenge.


The Deep South never gets any deeper than 1920s Jexville, Mississippi, of Carolyn Haines' novel Touched. Dirt poor Mattie is the arranged bride of the town's barber Elikah, who is prone to deliver vicious beatings to his young wife. When a little girl is struck by lightning at a party and not only survives, but seems to have attained the ability to predict the future, Jexville is turned on its ear. The townspeople believe that the child is probably in league with the devil and that she and her mother are a danger. Mattie befriends the pair, earning punishment at the hands of her husband before winning freedom for herself and her newfound friends.
