The Messenger of Magnolia Street tells the haunting story of three childhood friends who reunite to fight the unnamed presence that is slowly draining their beloved town of goodness and light. Nehemiah Trust fled his hometown of Shibboleth twelve years ago, after the death of his mother. Now chief of staff for a powerful senator, Nehemiah has washed his hands of Shibboleth. But one night his older brother Billy and childhood friend Trice appear at his front door. Something is wrong, they tell him. Nehemiah is needed back home. This mesmerizing novel of love awakened, purpose abandoned, and legacy reclaimed begins as slow and easy as a southern Sunday, but as the town of Shibboleth begins to sense the approaching darkness, the three friends must race against time to save the lifeblood of the place they call home. The solution requires a willingness to sacrifice everything. Praise for The Messenger of Magnolia Street "An inspiring tale of light versus darkness in a small Southern town conjures up the traditions of Flannery O'Connor, Harper Lee, and Peter Straub." Tampa Tribune "This is a tale of wonder and signs. Immerse yourself in this wondrously redemptive tale." Southern Living "In the best tradition of Stephen King and Peter Straub, Jordan creates an eerily sinister landscape in which the age-old struggle of Good versus Evil is played out within the subtle context of family, faith, and friendship. " Booklist The Messenger of Magnolia Street is "a delight in Jordans deft hands. A beautifully written, atmospheric tale. Kirkus Review
