Three members of the McIntosh family are setting up appointments with death, marking it on their calendars for Friday, May 10, 1963. That’s the day an F5 tornado will obliterate everything in its path in a mile-wide trail of desolation across Oklahoma—and their little town is in its path.
Pastor Mac McMIntosh lost his faith when his wife died–it’s time now to end the charade. His 16-year-old daughter and his father-in-law are arranging to actually kill somebody that day. For one it’s an act of hopeless desperation; for the other, a final declaration of unconditional love.
Add to the three with death plans a mysterious inmate called Princess. At 5 o’clock that Friday afternoon, the state of Oklahoma is scheduled to strap her into an electric chair named Sizzlin’ Suzie and turn on the juice.
But when Mac grudgingly agrees to meet daily with Princess during her final five days, everything changes. Princess has watched Mac and his family for years, looking out through someone else’s eyes. She speaks into Mac’s heart with insight and grace, while in her own heart she harbors a secret she’s determined to carry to her grave about the little sister she confessed to beheading 14 years ago.
Princess knows the monster tornado is coming. She calls it The Big Ugly and she pleads with Mac to run! But by then, it’s too late. For all of them.
Escape your own Wherever You Are into this powerful Christian suspense novel where award-winning journalist and best-selling author Ninie Hammon has created in Princess “a character as unique and memorable as John Coffey in The Green Mile.” Publisher’s Weekly also praised the book’s “well-woven storyline, wonderfully rich, characters” and called the novel’s underlying message of faith “a fine story of love and sacrifice that will hook readers to the end.”
In Five Days in May, Hammon has served up a tale full of twists, turns and surprises, with her trademark “dusting of the unexplainable” and a shocking surprise ending you absolutely will not see coming.
Five Days in May is Book One in the Unexplainable Collection. In this collection of four stand-alone suspense novels—each with its own cast, a unique setting and a story unconnected to the other three—all the characters start out believing that the universe operates in a predictable manner, that there are immutable laws and a natural reason for everything. The problem with that thinking is that some things aren’t natural. They’re supernatural. There are forces at work in the universe we can’t see, with power we can’t begin to imagine and plans we don’t understand.
What that means is that smack in the middle of their ordinary lives the people in these stories will encounter the unexplainable…and it’s always the game-changer.
