Families are messy because relationships are. The Strange family of Castle Cove, North Carolina is no different. Three brothers grow up with the same parents who love them equally and provide for them generously because they can, yet each brother turns out different. Harrison, the oldest, takes over the family sawmill business. Sonny, the middle one, goes down the rabbit hole of alcoholism, while Sydney, the youngest, becomes an Episcopal priest who is determined to save his brother from himself, driving a wedge between them that finally forces him to confront his own humanity, including his unconscious white privilege endemic to small town southern life he has always taken for granted. Caught in the tension between the demands of truth and the resilience of hope, the Strange family saga will make you laugh and cry as you experience the power of storytelling at its best.
