A new house of worship, St. Cecilia’s Episcopal Church, takes her place on the town square and the pristine little Presbyterian clapboard structure opposite seems to shrink and pale in contrast- which is just fine with the folks of St. Cecilia’s. To this prosperous new edifice the parish calls the Reverend James MacAllister, who arrives with his willowy and quiet wife, Sarah, and their three very young children. Father MacAllister suffers a rather embarrassing introduction to his new fold, and his life hangs in the balance for one very long evening. This is Part I of a serialized family saga that will extend past the tumultuous war years of the early Twentieth Century. This is a story of faith: faith professed, faith found, faith pretended, faith lost, and faith quite absent. Each character takes their place in the complex harmonies and discords of the grand symphony that is the life of a church.
