SWEET, SWEET SPIRIT- “God Has Come to Asbury, Melanie, and He Has Told Me, ‘I Want My Daughter Here.’”
With that message relayed from her friend, Jack, Melanie heads off to the Asbury College campus and a life-changing event.
1968 was the gloomiest year of Melanie McKnight’s life. In its shadows lurked the pain of her cousin “Mac’s” death in the Tet Offensive, her widowed father’s departure on the presidential campaign trail, and Melanie’s residence with a glacial grandmother. A ray of hope becomes a blazing fire when she discovers and campaigns for Senator Robert F. Kennedy, who seems to be the only one who can mend a nation fractured by racial tension and war.
But life has a way of surprising us—and altering our plans. Melanie learns many lessons along the way, including the greatest one of all.
During this present darkness in America, the events of fifty years ago have never shone more clearly nor provided so much hope.
