Through his protagonist, a pastor, the author explores themes of forced change and faith succumbing to fear in this suspenseful narrative about a father and son navigating personal upheaval.

The metaphor of a flood often signifies the cleansing of old ways, thus allowing for new paths to open. Set in a rural Tennessee valley, brothers Luke and Asher are estranged after Luke comes out as gay and, faced with condemnation, leaves home. Some years later the Cumberland River floods and the community is decimated. In the aftermath, Asher, a preacher, offers housing to a gay couple, for he now sees that all people are children of God and is subsequently rejected by his family and his church. Desperate, Asher takes his son to Key West, hoping to find his brother, Luke, whom he had abandoned.
