Annotation The story of 12-year-old Esta Lea, a deeply religious young woman living in South Carolina during the early 1960s. Although Esta has strong religious beliefs, even she is shocked to discover that she has the gift of healing. Accompanied by her older sister and recently reformed (but still rather disreputable) uncle, Esta is sent out on a healing tour by her church--a tour that brings new insights not only into her religious beliefs and her role as a healer but also into her relationships with her family members.
Editors Note In 1962 in South Carolina, twelve-year-old Esta is called into the ministry of Jesus and anointed with the gift of healing, but when her relatives decide to take her on a religious crusade she wonders if it is the right thing to do. Reprint.
