Summary
Marianne is in a slump: barely able to support herself teaching, not making progress on her poetry, about to lose her Brooklyn apartment. When her novelist ex-fiancé, Eric, and his venture capitalist brother, Mark, offer her a job directing a low-residency school for Christian writers on Florida's Gulf Coast, she can't say no, and so the Genesis Inspirational Writing Ranch is born. Liberal, atheist Marianne is soon swimming in applications from writers whose beliefs she has always opposed. Mark finds an investor in God's Word God's World, a business which develops for-profit schools for the Christian market, but their involvement becomes increasingly problematic. As unsavory allegations mount, a hurricane bears down on the Ranch, and Marianne is faced with the consequences of her decisions
