Waters of Marah

For 28 years, Gloria Bickford has lived under the thumb of her overbearing mother. Only twice during that time has Gloria ever had the courage to defy her—when she accepted Jesus as Savior and when she moved into her own apartment. Gloria is about to do it a third time by refusing to marry the man her mother has picked for her and by moving out of town. But after she moves, things quickly go from bad to worse. First, Gloria's neighbor commits suicide. Then Gloria discovers her boss is not quite the man she thought he was. Things continue to heat up when Perth, a semi-runaway, semi-juvenile delinquent attaches herself to Gloria and then again when the radical environmentalists come to town. All these elements combine to create a moral crisis for Gloria, and place her in a position where she stands to lose everything.
