This is Whitney. Things don’t change and they don’t need to change. Do they?Hearts, minds, faith and tradition will be tested as will friendships and marriages when this sleepy southern town comes to grips with itself amid the early years of the Civil Rights Movement.

Ready to put his intellect on the line, Max thrusts himself right into the scientific puzzle, and he serendipitously discovers something that even bemuses the professor himself, an invention that could change the world. But can Max push forth with his scientific investigation without alienating those he loves or compromising his Christian values? The professor and Max both embark on a quest whose destination no one around them could possibly have seen coming…
