Life in the small Southern town of Sutter's Cross is comfortable and predictable until the homeless man shows up. Disheveled and bruised, he seems to have no past. But almost immediately, the town is touched by his quiet presence. Who is this stranger? Sutter's Cross, a Main Selection of the Crossings Book Club, sheds new light on the nature of God’s guidance.
- Lots of subplots, too many distractions
The description indicates that "...the homeless man shows up...he seems to have no past...Who is this stranger?" The problem is, this book devotes a lot of time to many other characters -as opposed to a focus on the stranger, Harley. Sometimes there are huge gaps where Harley isn't involved. Very disappointed.
