Since her mother died, shes become an orphan...or has she? Her mother uttered some unsettling things on her deathbed, things that convince Emma to board a cross-country bus to find the popular televangelist Manny Powers and unravel the mystery of the key her mother mentioned.After a calamitous journey where she loses almost everything she has, she arrives at the mega-church in the desert. However, Manny isnt what she expected, and neither is his family: most notably, the son who wants Emma out of the way, and another son who morphs into a frightening person when hes high. And despite her best intentions at fitting in, she makes everything much, much worse, inadvertently exposing the beloved televangelists family secrets and leading the authorities right to their doorstep.Will Emmas larceny and subterfuge be exposed? Will she discover the truth about her mothers past and therefore her own identity? And can she ever find a place where she truly belongs?This novel explores the human struggles inherent in every journey: the longing to find a safe place to land- the impossibility of predicting outcomes and behaviors- and the power of seeking a bright future, despite a dim past.
