One hungover morning in a Walmart parking lot in a little town near Georgian Bay, Joan is drawn to a revival tent where the local Métis have been flocking to hear a charismatic preacher. When she gets there, the service is over, but as she leaves, she hears an unmistakable voice: her husband, Victor, who’s been missing for over a year. But the man insists he’s not Victor, he’s the Reverend Eugene Wolff, on a mission to bring his people to Jesus. And as she confronts him, there’s no flicker of recognition in his eyes.

With only two allies – her odd, Johnny Cash-loving twelve-year-old nephew Zeus, and Ajean, a foul-mouthed euchre shark with a deep knowledge of the old ways-Joan sets out to remind the Reverend who he really is. If he really is Victor, his life, and the lives of everyone she loves, depend upon her success.
