How will a young family in 1830s Alabama break free from their society’s prevailing beliefs? Do individuals really have the power to change the direction in which their society is moving? Can love transcend the boundaries we draw around our lives? Red Feather tackles these questions and more while illustrating powerful spiritual truths that are every bit as true today as they were over a hundred years ago. As Leah Stimpson’s story winds through backwoods swamps, elegant port towns, and stormy Gulf waters, she illuminates exactly how the people of our not-so-distant past were able to choose God’s light over man’s desire for darkness. By learning from them, we just might be able to do the same.
“Red Feather captured my imagination from the beginning. I felt like one of the children sitting on the couch absorbed in Red Feather and Samuel’s innocent, beautiful romance-a story that demonstrates a higher truth of a far deeper love. It is as if Leah jumped into that great river of inspiration and let the current take her.” -Stephanie B. Morris, portrait artist in Mobile, Alabama
