Flesh and Bone

Thomas Wescott has survived poverty, segregation, wars and thirteen American presidents. He has been labeled a prophetic child of God and a Doubting Thomas. What he hasn't survived is the death of his daughter. A former preacher turned alcoholic drifter, Thomas has wondered through chapter three of his life drifting from temporary homes, whether indoors or out, making his way day by day, hour by hour. Thomas wholeheartedly believed in the power of God’s promises. But when his prayers to heal his ten year old daughter were not answered, it cost him his marriage and ultimately his faith. On the anniversary of this tragedy, Thomas makes his usual visit to Blues Jook and Chicken, his refuge from society, and gets an awakening when he mistakes the newly hired waitress for his daughter who’s been deceased thirty years.
