Carbon County, Wyoming is like a current running through Daphne’s heart.
When life gets too tough to bear in Detroit, Daphne flees to her Uncle
Floyd’s home, where she believes she’ll find solace in the silent hills
of her childhood summers. But Daphne’s Greyhound bus pulls over in
downtown Carbon County and it’s not silence that welcomes her. It’s the
sound of trumpets.
Daphne’s desire to start again in simple
country comfort is instantly dashed as the townsfolk declare that the
End Times are here. And incredible occurrences soon support their
belief. Daphne does all she can to keep her head down and ignore the
signs. She works a job at the local oil rig, helps around the house,
hangs out with her pregnant cousin Janie and gets to know Owen, a
mysterious motocross racer and fellow roustabout at the rig. But soon a
startling discovery shatters her resolve and calls into question all her
doubts and fears.
Daphne landed in Carbon County for a reason. She only has to read the signs—and believe.
