WHEN WE WERE SAINTS
Orlando, Fla. : Harcourt,
seems that Archie can do nothing right in the eyes of his grandfather.
So when he and his best friend built a still in the basement, he is not
surprised that his grandfather got extremely angry. But Archie didn't
expect his grandfather to collapse and later die. On his death bed,
his grandfather pointed at him and declared "Young man. You are a
saint." Was this a curse or a blessing? Coming from the town
prophet, this statement was discussed by old and young alike. Archie
wasn't sure what to make of it. He certainly doesn't feel like a
saint. But then he meets Clare. A beautiful young woman who
has her own ideas of what it takes to be a saint. Under her guidance,
Archie begins to feel the power of God and believes that he may actually
be a saint. But is there something else going on?
