A feast of family can be a plate-load of problems!
A mother and a daughter, both newlyweds, decide to set up housekeeping together. Dee and Valerie move with their husbands into a modern glass house Valerie built in a proudly rural Los Altos, California neighborhood. When their relatives start showing up and moving in, the neighbors get suspicious. Then a body is found in the backyard and the life they are trying to build comes undone.
Father Mike is back to guide Dee through a difficult time with humor and grace, even as his own life is unraveling. It looks like he’s going to have to take some of his own advice about love.
The sequel to The Sheep Walker’s Daughter, The Lyre and the Lambs explores the passions that draw people together and the faith it takes to overcome trauma.
