The town of Nazareth is beginning to feel like home to young preacher Jeb Nubey and the three Welby kids in his charge. But just as he's about to take over the pulpit, a local war breaks out--and only Jeb can make peace between the town's prosperous banker and its hungry, desperate citizens. Meanwhile, there are mouths to feed, the increasingly rebellious Angel Welby to wrangle with, and Fern, the schoolteacher who barely gives him the time of day, to win over. Yet his greatest dilemma is walking his way--in the person of one of the most alluring and richest young women in Nazareth. Now torn between corn bread on his own table and defending the people who need him most, Jeb must look deep within to find his way.
