South of Heaven
Fern McQueen has found peace in middle age despite worries over her troubled son and a beloved aunt whose mind is slipping away. But when Fern’s past is resurrected, her peace is shattered. Meanwhile, her sister Leona’s life in Raleigh begins to unravel. To avoid humiliation and snubs from an unforgiving social set, Leona loads up her Lexus and heads for home -- a place she vowed to leave forever.
With the Bill CLinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal playing out live on CNN, Fern and Leona’s own secrets become front page news and the sisters find themselves at odds with grown children who feel betrayed by a lifetime of lies.
Miscommunications and slights, real and imagined, threaten the sisters divided but the inexplicable bond of family, a widowed preacher in search of his lost faith, and an unlikely business venture deliver rescue.
