    Haunted by her sister's mysterious disappearance, Lucy Wilson arrives in Rowan County, Kentucky, in the spring of 1911 to work for Cora Wilson Stewart, superintendent of education. When Cora sends Lucy into the hills to act as scribe for the mountain people, she  is repelled by the primitive conditions and intellectual poverty she encounters. Few adults can read and write. 
     
    Born in those hills, Cora knows the plague of illiteracy. So does Brother Wyatt, a singing schoolmaster who travels through the hills. Involving Lucy and Wyatt, Cora hatches a plan to open the schoolhouses to adults on moonlit nights. The best way to combat poverty, she believes, is to eliminate illiteracy. But will the people come?  
     
    As Lucy emerges from a life in the shadows, she finds purpose; or maybe purpose finds her. With purpose comes answers to her questions, and something else she hadn't expected: love.  
     
    Inspired by the true events of the Moonlight Schools, this standalone novel from bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher brings to life the story that shocked the nation into taking adult literacy seriously. You'll finish the last page of this enthralling story with deep gratitude for the gift of reading.

Lucetta's widowed friend, Abigail Hart, is delighted at the opportunity to meddle in Lucetta's life and promptly whisks her away to her grandson's estate to hide out. Bram Haverstein may appear to simply be a somewhat eccentric gentleman of means, but a mysterious career and a secret fascination with a certain actress mean there's much more to him than society knows. Lucetta, who has no interest in Abigail's matchmaking machinations, has the best intentions of remaining cordial but coolly distant to Bram.

    The Problem of Wineskins foresaw many of the issues the church would to face. It highlighted the critical issues relating to the church’s primary expressions and forms (wineskins). It gently questioned our understanding of discipleship, ecclesiology, Trinitarian theology, and the social implications of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
     
    This 40th Anniversary edition of The Problem of Wineskins offers the opportunity for Snyder’s simple message to be read again at a time when it is even more needed than before. May we listen afresh and discern a birthing of new faithfulness for the church in mission for the twenty-first century.
