When you understand that suicidal thoughts among the Children of the New Revelation are considered signs of demonic possession, you can understand how shocking it is for Hannah Priest Wyatt, an Instrument of the Divine, to be having such thoughts. Yet she is indeed contemplating suicide.
Emily Fisher has decided it is her responsibility to save Hannah.

And in so doing, Emily must carve out her own path to “Salvation” in chapter 45 of Prophecies and Penalties.
