Following the death of her beloved husband, Rayn retreats to her new home by the sea, anticipating a life less stressful. But she soon finds herself drawn into the rescue of a failing, 100 year old, Episcopal Church. Within months, church elders hire a young priest to facilitate the work, with the help of Rayn and other church members. Unbeknownst to Rayn, while the church flourishes with new life, the priest is destroying her own life with outrageous and false claims, including that she is really a man with false breasts who is stalking him—a crime punishable by imprisonment. These lies are unquestioningly believed by all as the church hierarchy turns a deaf ear to Rayn’s appeals to silence her accuser. Instead, they cover up to protect him. With only one choice left, Rayn risks everything in a desperate, last effort to restore her name and reputation.

- I believe this provocative and powerful book is the truth as I was a member for many years of his church in Mills River, NC. He brought the same characteristics that created problems for him in Monterey, California where he was a priest in an Episcopal Church to our church. I can understand the pain that Ms. Random had to endure as “who doesn’t trust their priest”. This book is beautifully written and I believe one of those books that readers will long remember. Fortunately, he has resigned from our church, but sadly he has started another mission with people who were new to the church and just are not aware of these traits.

- Could not put it down. I read this book because I know the person about whom it was written and could relate personally with what he had done. (By Adele M. Kenny on April 5, 2013)
- What an amazing experience. I hesitate to say story but it does read as a stunning novel if only it were. I too started this book and had read it within 72 hours. This may seem easy, but for someone who works 10 hours a day. It was so compelling that I just could not put it down. A must read for any one. Rayn Random shows how easily a witch hunt can start then gain momentum. How we accept on face value what we are told, especially if the person is revered, a priest someone most of us respect. She had the resolve and strength to fight the injustice, many people would have walked away. In your wildest imagination you would never come up with this story. An absolute must for everyone to read. (By Helen on March 14, 2012)
- I loved this book and could not put it down! I read it this weekend. It was well written and What a Story! Rayn Random did a great job exposing the hypocrisy in the Episcopal church she was so faithful about attending and participating in and they turned their back on her. I liked it as much as “Good Christian Bitches” and that is now a TV Show! I was happy justice was served! (By Suzanne M. Altobello on March 12, 2012)
