by Ray Dionne
When Tricia discovers her old childhood computer in her closet, she is amazed at what she finds: a story, written by her much younger self, telling of a tragic event involving her beloved pet pig. Now a senior in college, Tricia only needs one final math credit to graduate, but for the life of her, she cannot get a passing grade. Her future and her ability to graduate are left up to her enigmatic math professor, Cornelius Kelly, a war hero and wounded warrior. Tricia, in her own way, is also wounded. Each has a spiritual story to tell, which will ultimately bring them to a deep connection neither one of them could have expected.
