One Little Word: A Mary Fisher Novel
1896: Upon leaving the town of Loggerhead behind them, Mary and Abigail continue on their journey home to Greenhaven only to be delayed when they allow themselves to be led by a lost child into the Florida wilderness where a hidden church, which only allows guests entry by special invitation, claims to be home to a ministering angel. At first, Mary wants to press forward with their travel plans, only when she discovers that an acquaintance is donating huge sums of money just for the chance of bearing witness to a divine miracle, she decides to pay up and remain to observe so as to draw her own conclusions. After observing a case of supernatural healing, Mary comes to discover that the angel’s keeper is far from the heaven-born saint that he claims to be, and when the man attempts to unleash his own brand of hell on earth, Mary finds herself faced with an evil that can only be felled by One Little Word... Tortured by her own conscience when temptation calls, driven by her own lust for vengeance when a friend is murdered, and led of an elusive, ethereal spirit to right the wrongs perpetrated against the innocent, Mary must follow her own heart in order to navigate through the dark waters that threaten to inundate the hidden village of Bela, where traditional values have been twisted into something horrific that only she has the force of will to untangle. With the help of Abigail and her friends, Mary cautiously advances through a series of shifting alliances during which she will discover who she can afford to trust, and who she must be willing to kill.

Assessment:

In T.A. Peters's enthralling occult historical, cross-dressing Mary Fisher and her wife Abigail, fleeing the unsympathetic law, seek shelter in an isolated Florida church, heart of a community home to both wonder and horror. This winning novel draws its power from the author's skillful prose, mastery of dialect, embrace of the rich diversity of 19th-century America, and the skill with which he weaves together the supernatural with deplorably mundane corruption and brutal exploitation. Peters's grim tale transcends the limitations of genre series and is sure to delight readers.
