Publisher's Summary

It's 1932, and Sullivan Harris is on the run. He promised the people of Kline, West Virginia, that he would find them water, but now he's failed and disappeared with their cash. Although he's determined to stay a step ahead of pursuers - like Jeremiah Weber - his resources are running low.  

Gainey Floyd is suspicious of Sulley's claim to be a dowser when he appears in town but reconsiders after he finds water. Rather, it's Sulley who grows uneasy when his success makes folks wonder if he can find more than water - like forgotten items or missing people. He lights out to escape such expectations and runs smack into something worse.  

Hundreds of men have found jobs digging the Hawks Nest Tunnel - but what they thought was a blessing is killing them. And no one seems to care. Here, Sulley finds something new - a desire to help. As Jeremiah - and now Gainey - pursue him, Sulley becomes the unexpected catalyst for finding what even he has forgotten. Hope.

No one wants to be forgotten

In 1932, life in America was hard for many reasons. It was hard to find work, and when you did, it was usually brutal, taxing work. Sulley (Sullivan Harris) chose to use his charm to take advantage of this and maybe not work. The sometimes successful dowser would travel around promising to find people water. Of course, if a dug well was dry, he didn't hang around long enough to do more than get his money.

Jeremiah Weber from Kline West Virginia was given the task from the town to go find that scoundrel Sulley and get their money back. Jeremiah found much more than his man.

When Sulley ends up in front of Gainey Floyd, working as Postmistress in Mount Lookout, she is suspicious of him, yet for some unknown reason, she has an affection for him.

These three begin an adventure, separately, but then together, that brings them to the Hawks Nest Tunnel, where many men are digging the tunnel, and many are dying. Sulley, Gainey, and Jeremiah are not the people you would expect to form a relationship, but they do in very remarkable ways.

We are taken on a journey, a beautiful, touching venture that reminds us of the importance of remembering and to seek the forgotten things.

Sarah Loudin Thomas is an amazing historical writer, and she does not disappoint in this novel. She researches her history well, then delivers it to us with care, accuracy, and a whole lot of understanding of the greatest love of all...God's love for us.

Maybe God is using you to find things He doesn't want forgotten .
