Beth fears her marriage is over. Since Rick became a pastor, he's lost touch with her and their sons. When he receives an offer from an out-of-state congregation, he retreats to the backyard shed to await a sign from God. Meanwhile, Beth escapes to a beach house to sort things out. Will Rick's longed-for sign ever come?
Unabridged audio CD; approximately 9.75 hours; 8 CDs; read by Rebecca Gallagher.
Being married to a saint isn't what it's cracked up to be. Beths husband wont be joining the family on vacation at the beach this year. Hes not even joining them in the house. Instead, Rick has holed up alone in the backyard shed. Nobody knows exactly what hes up to. Maybe hes immersing himself in prayer. Maybe hes lost his mind. Maybe hes even the modern-day prophet or the saint the neighborhood artist imagines him to be. But while "St. Rick" waits for an epiphany, Beth will have to figure out what to do with herself and their teenage sons, possibly for the rest of her life. What happens next is both uproarious and bittersweet: a peace march turns violent, her son is caught with drugs, and she embarks on an ambitious road trip that turns into something nearly surreal. Will Beth rediscover the idealistic woman she used to be, once upon a time? Can her marriage survive Ricks backyard vigil? Will anything ever be the same? And should it be? Truthful, comic, heartbreaking, and magical in the very best sense of the word, The Sky Beneath My Feet gently tears the veil off our egos and expectations to reveal the throbbing, redemptive, and achingly beautiful life beyond and within us.
"The Sky Beneath My Feet is bright but unassuming. The protagonist totally enchants both ones spirit and ones mind with her shrewd insights and gentle humility. This is Samson at her best!"
Phyllis Tickle, author of Emergence Christianity
