Award-winning columnist and author Phil Callaway offers up his first novel filled with the warmth and richness readers have come to love! This tender coming-of-age story is set on "the edge of the world"--a small town in Canada--where a young boy lives with his poor but loving family. His life is full of the adventures, mishaps, questions, and convictions common to many of his peers. But then he discovers a hidden stash of money--and more trouble than he thought possible. As he struggles with the temptation to keep the money and tries to unravel the mystery of its origin, he discovers an even greater mystery--the mystery of the grace of God as it is expressed through a small community of believers. With a cast of characters worthy of a Mark Twain novel, a mysterious illness, an astounding confession, and a lump-in-the-throat climax, this story is sure to bring laughter and tears as it entertains and enriches a wide range of readers.
