Set in a fictional Indiana town during the Great Depression, Jim Leonard Jr.'s moving drama focuses on the friendship between an ex-preacher from Kentucky and a disturbed young boy. The boy -- deeply traumatized by a near-drowning in his past that led to the death of his mother -- is now terrified of water, but also gifted with the ability to divine its location. As the bond between these two grows, the preacher works with the boy to overcome his crippling fear of water. And when the townspeople, desperate for a spiritual leader, mistake an eventual bathing for a baptism, their confusion leads to some significant consequences in The Diviners. Learn More

In the wake of the death of her roommate and dance partner, Anna finds her life in more flux than she ever imagined possible. Thrust out of her comfort zone, Anna struggles to have courage of convictions at a time when she can’t be sure of the nature or implications of those convictions. In her struggles to transform herself into a choreographer, she finds herself in the arms of two men — the loving, understanding, and wealthy Burton and Pale, the outspoken, ebullient, and unpredictable brother of her deceased partner. Decisions are not cut and dry. Anna must wrestle with the concept and practice of self and follow her heart when her head is fraught with indecision and suspicion.
