Summary
The story of the Schapens and the Grelliers, two Kansas farm families whose histories have been entwined since the 1850s. The Schapen Family, still terrified by the lawlessness of the 1970s--have turned to that old-time religion for security. They keep a close eye on all their neighbors, most especially the Grelliers. When Gina Haring, a Wiccan, moves into a nearby empty farmhouse and starts practicing pagan rites, the Schapens are so outraged that they begin an active harassment campaign against the Wiccans. When a Schapen cow gives birth to what may be a "Perfect Red Heifer"--Needed if the Temple is ever rebuilt in Jerusalem--the Schapens are convinced that God is indeed smiling on them. Despite warnings from their parents, the Grelliers' teenage children are enraged by the Schapens. One particularly angry confrontation causes Chip Grellier to be expelled from school and consequently to join the Army. Chip's death in Iraq is the catalyzing event for momentous, even monstrous, challenges in the lives of not only the Schapens and the Grelliers but all the families in the valley
