Ra Jolene Gibson has been alone for a long, damn time, but she never noticed, what with keeping Gibson's Bait & Tackle from going under, reading those Tarot cards, and making cures for folks. No one knew she also spent time with her secret boyfriend, Lyman Pettigrew, and, if asked, she couldn't have said why she kept messing with him. Life in a small town was a lot like the Bacon River beside the Bait & Tackle, slow and meandering. No one had an inkling of the changes headed their way - a miracle impacting them and everyone they knew. Welcome to Magnolia, Virginia, a sleepy little place about to wake up.
