The TentmakerBook - 1999
Lily Connor has spent the past six months in her native Texas at her father's bedside watching him die. When her close friend Bishop Lamont Spencer calls to ask if she wants to take a job in Boston as the interim priest--or tentmaker--for a wealthy parish that has just lost its priest, she leaps at the opportunity. The beloved rector had died suddenly of a heart attack, brought on by insulin shock; the parishioners require a compassionate, experienced priest to guide them through this time of change.Soon after Lily takes over the job, however, she begins to suspect both the official version of the priest's death and those who insist on its truth. As she is drawn ever deeper into the parish and the deadly secrets hidden within, Lily discovers that she may pay for her role of tentmaker with her own life.
