Signposts to Victory is composed of four parts. In Part 1, three women set out on what they think will be an uneventful trip to a small southern town. The shocking discovery they make there, however, turns their lives upside-down, placing them in awkward and dangerous positions.
In subsequent parts, a series of unusual finds present unique challenges for other characters, as well. Shrouded in mystery and uncertainty, each surprising revelation calls for a solution, though often accompanied by painful inner struggles.
The question of forgiveness, the overriding theme of the novel, involves a choice each character must make that ultimately determines the path forward-toward either defeat or victory.
