Jenna Taylor lives a postcard perfect life in the suburbs with her husband Mark and their two little girls, Maggie and Dora. But when Mark is shot one evening outside a Memphis strip club, Jenna’s world is blown to pieces. Forced by a shrinking bank account to accept her mother-in-law’s offer of a free place to live, Jenna packs up and moves her young family to rural Tatum County. Here, Jenna must rely on Mark’s less-than-welcoming family as she struggles to make sense of life in the midst of tragedy. But will Jenna be able to put her life back together and start over? Slow Sun Rising is a story of resurrection, of letting go of the deadness of a self-centered heart to make room for loving others, of grieving the dead while learning to embrace the living.
