Summary (From the publisher):

The Owen children long ago left their gracious family home in Point Clear, Alabama, in favor of points north. But when their father takes ill, the youngest, Bonnie, who has spent a decade in Manhattan as an unsuccessful actress, returns to care for him. Soon after his death, unbeknown to her two siblings, Bonnie falls in love with and marries a handsome evangelical preacher, and together the couple takes up residence in the stately Owen mansion.

When they receive Bonnie's letter announcing her marriage, Ellen and Morris head for Alabama, believing they must extricate their troublesome sister from her latest mistake. To their surprise, they find that Bonnie's charismatic young husband, Pastor, has already saved her from her self-destructive ways, and Bonnie is now nearly three months pregnant. But Bonnie has only recently informed Pastor that Morris is gay, and Pastor, quickly undertakes a campaign to "save" him as well.

  • "I was already a fan of Dennis McFarland, so I'm happy to report that Letter from Point Clear is his best, most moving book so far. His characters, members of a privileged yet very poignant clan, surprised me again and again by the ways in which they won my heart. I know how trite it sounds to say that their story made me laugh and cry (and often), but that's the delightful truth." Julia Glass, author of The Whole World Over and Three Junes
