Years ago, the day before Ellie moved from Georgia to California, she and her best friend Nolan sat beneath an oak tree where they wrote letters to each other and sealed them in a box, planning to return eleven years later and read them. But now, as that date arrives, Ellie is a single mother living in a tired apartment, trying to make ends meet and bereft of the faith she grew up with. Sometimes she watches television to see her old friend – Nolan, now an NBA star, whose terrible personal tragedies fuelled his faith and athletic drive in equal measure. But Nolan also suffers from a transcendent loneliness that nothing has ever eased. As they move toward a reunion at the oak tree, Kingsbury weaves a tale of heart-wrenching loss, the power of faith, and the wounds that only love can heal.
