Their Faces Were Shining
by Tim Wilson
'Their Faces Were Shining' is a literary thriller recounting the Rapture from the point of view of Hope Patterson, a middle-aged Presbyterian woman who is not taken up. Oh, and it's funny. As Hope's world falls apart, she must fight for those she has loved so poorly, and then for herself. 'Their Faces Were Shining' was a finalist in the NZ Post Book Awards.
