Rachel's devotion just might destroy her soul, but only she can save herself.

Rachel Walker is devoted to God. She prays every day, attends Calvary Christian Church with her family, helps care for her five younger siblings, dresses modestly, and prepares herself to be a wife and mother who serves the Lord with joy. But Rachel is curious about the world her family has turned away from, and increasingly finds that neither the church nor her homeschool education has the answers she craves.

Rachel once found solace in her beliefs, but now she can’t shake the feeling that her devotion might destroy her soul.
