When she strikes up a friendship with a new recruit, Grace, finally God seems to be smiling upon her. The friends become closer as they wait together for the Lord to return to their very own Garden of Eden. But Dilys is wary of their leader's zealotry and suspicious of those who would seem to influence her to their own end.
