“…God works all things together for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
When private investigator Steve Banfeld travels to southern Minnesota to help his FBI buddy intercept a terrorist cell that was traveling with a large group of South American immigrants, he never dreamed he might come close to solving the missing person case that had haunted him for 20 years. But there’s more than one unsolved missing person in Peace Ridge Village. Brian Peterson’s discovery of the small chest, long hidden in the wall of the Peterson Printing plant, yields more than just valuable rare coins. Its papers and old newspaper clippings might contain the clues to the story of one of the village’s most eccentric residents. Tom Simmonds has just accepted the fact that he’ll miss his late wife Pansy for the rest of his life. Will he miss a new chance at love this summer? Pastor Ed and Jill miss their estranged son Robby and he shows no interest in reconciliation. Until a surprising visit home which seems to open a new door. In “Kindred Come”, Book Four of the Peace Ridge Village series, God’s hand, as always, is seen to be working for good – yielding immense joy -- in the lives of these treasured neighbors and friends.
