After his wife's death, engineer Dudley Redfern moves from Wisconsin to Sprite, Georgia, seeking to hide from his grief
by burying himself in work. He soon comes to believe everyone is crazy in this tiny town, where Old Southern values are
placed on odd pedestals and more than the usual spiritual awakenings take place. Little does he know that the quiet
nights and work-filled days he expected will soon be interrupted when Sprite’s prodigal son returns to run for high
office, and he finds himself embroiled in an age-old scandal and searching for solutions to issues he has never faced
before. Will this master problem solver be able to find an elegant solution that will protect the town, his reputation,
and the mill he is hired to fix?
