They say evil comes in many forms . . . I know this to be fact. And he lived in my house.

I learned that first hand at the age of seventeen. My mother's third husband was the preacher . . . a man of the cloth who had a secret agenda within our small Southern community.

My name is Sunny Gardner. And Layton, Alabama is my home, or least it had been until the preacher came into our lives. A minister who preached the Word, but lived a lie. But the folks in this town had closed their eyes and ears to the truth once they fell under the preacher's spell. As it turned out, I was the one they believed was evil. I'm the one who was shamed into leaving town.

This is my story. A story of struggle and triumph and, ultimately, how I saved myself and my community from the devil himself.
