Hawkins’s latest collection, One Righteous Person, delves into the lives of those who seek adventure, faith, hope, love, peace, and patience. The characters come to life as they learn to overcome their troubles and offer their lives to God. We learn about a range of characters, including a doctor who has the ability to erase memories, and a great king who plans to destroy every person in his kingdom, a strong-willed woman who sets out to rekindle her failing marriage, and a woman whose rebellious past resurfaces and is determined to redefine her faith. “She had faith strong enough to move a mountain…or in her case, bring her son back to life.” Through trial and error and patience, these characters find their way through mazes of obstacles and find themselves.
