In the hills of East Tennessee, a reluctant sense of duty compels Ben Bellamy to lead his churchs outreach committee. And somewhere between these two events faith inspires an unlikely connection. Not all of Mevins family escapes the horror of genocide, but along with his brother he finally makes his way to America. Waiting for him is Ben, a man whose natural goodness outshines the obstacles inherent in welcoming a stranger to Appalachia. Having only honest hearts in common, the men struggle to find their way together. But through a sort of awkward grace, the men uncover a friendship that only poets and old cowboy movies seem to understand.

With Bens help, Mevin thrives in his new country. And when Ben becomes ill, Mevin becomes his salvation. The story is representative of the thousands of Burundian and Rwandan refugees who escaped their countries genocides and with the help of ordinary people made new lives in America -- even in Appalachia.
