TouchedeBook - 2011
Johanna McVay is a woman who excites fear and anger in Jexville. She is out-spoken and some say outrageous. When her nine-year-old daughter, Duncan, is struck by lightning while dancing - a pastime frowned upon by the religious elements of the town - some say the uppity family got what it deserved. Duncan survives, but she is changed forever. She now has the ability to prophesy the future, but only in a limited aspect. When a terrible injustice is committed in the town, Johanna will not leave it alone. She has befriended a young woman, Mattie, who is a mail order bride to the town barber, a brutal man. Mattie narrates the story, and ultimately has the final say in bringing justice for sins long buried.
