“By faith, the walls of Jericho fell down…”
— Hebrews 11:30
Librarian Syd Murphy flees the carnage of a failed marriage by accepting an 18-month position in Jericho; a small town located in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Intending to hide out and heal her wounds, she soon becomes drawn into the daily lives of a quirky cast of local characters, and she becomes fast friends with Maddie Stevenson, the enigmatic local physician who has returned to the backcountry community to take over her late father’s medical practice.
