Summary
From the acclaimed author of Spoonbenders comes the gripping tale about a family's mysterious religion, and the daughter who turned her back on their god. In 1933, nine-year-old Stella is left by her father in the care of her grandmother, Motty, in the backwoods of Tennessee. The remote hills of the Smoky Mountains are home to dangerous secrets, and upon her arrival, Stella wanders into a dark cavern where she encounters the presence of the family's personal god, an entity known only as Ghostdaddy. Fifteen years later, after a tragic incident causes her to flee, Stella-now a professional moonshiner and bootleg runner-returns for Motty's funeral, only to find a mysterious ten-year-old girl named Sunny living on the property. Though she appears innocent enough, Sunny is more powerful than Stella can ever know and a direct link to Stella's buried past. Haunting and wholly engrossing, Revelator is the story of a prodigal coming home to put an end to her family's destructive faith, which summons mesmerizing voices and gives shape to the dark. It's a southern gothic tale for the ages
