Kathryn Davies is a bright young woman from a prominent Phoenix family. But after making a leap of faith at a Christian music fest, dropping out of med school, and moving to inner city Chicago, her family has all but disowned her. Kat's enthusiasm for her newfound faith tempers the sting of their rejection.

When Kat discovers SouledOut Community Church, she longs to become a part of the multi-cultural church family. But her tendency to say whatever she's thinking and her eccentric ways step on the toes of nearly everyone she meets -- especially Avis Douglass, a woman she admires but who seems distant.

Avis is known for her mature faith and her reliance on listening to God more than people. Married to a kind and successful businessman, she is the principal of one of Chicago's highest performing elementary schools, and a founding and active member of SouledOut. But the country's economic downturn has thrown both her and her husband's jobs in question. And Avis hasn't heard from her youngest daughter in months -- an estrangement that gnaws at her every day. Where is God in all this?

Kat's flamboyant zeal for living a "radical" Christian life is a stark contrast to Avis's quiet crisis of faith. But in God's own mysterious ways, the two women discover they need each other in ways neither of them expected.
