Nothing’s going to stop Kyla…
until the ground crumbles beneath her feet.

Kyla Justice has arrived. Her company, Justice Construction, is one of the most critically acclaimed, commercially successful companies in the Pacific Northwest. And yet, something is missing. Not until she’s called on to build a center for inner-city kids does she realize what it is: her sense of purpose. Now nothing can stop her, not the low budget, not supply problems, not gang opposition, not her boyfriend’s suggestion that she sell her business and marry him–and most especially not that disagreeable Rafael Murphy.

Rafe Murphy understands battle. Wounded in action, this Force Recon Marine carries the scars–and the nightmares–to prove it. Though he can’t fight overseas any longer, he’s found his place as a warrior in the civilian world. So he soldiers on, trusting that one of these days, God will reveal to him why Rafe survived the ambush in Iraq. That day has arrived.

Kyla and Rafe both discover that determination alone won’t carry them through danger and challenges. When gang violence threatens their very foundations, there’s only one way to survive: rely on each other, be real–and surrender to God. In other words, risk everything…

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In Ball's final series title (after Shattered Justiceand Kaleidoscope Eyes), Kyla Justice's business, Justice Construction, has become extremely profitable. Meanwhile, her personal life is lacking. Although it means opposition from every direction, she throws herself into completing a project that will help urban kids. Based on the Old Testament's book of Nehemiah, this final chapter addresses the issue of what truly gives a person purpose and meaning in life. A spirited, agreeable modern heroine breathes life into a standard plot; readers will cheer her on to victory. Recommended for CF and women's fiction collections. Ball lives in Oregon.

Reading Group Guide

1. Kyla, Annie (Annot), and Dan (Avidan) share a unique characteristic: Their parents named them intentionally with the prayer that God would show Himself true in their lives to the meaning of their names. Avidan means “God is just,” so he dealt with issues of justice. Annot means “God is light,” and she struggled with seeing herself through the light of God’s grace.

Kyla Marie Justice had a lot to live up to. Kyla means “victorious”; Marie means: “the perfect one.” And yet, in her own eyes, she was anything but victorious or perfect. What do the following Scriptures tell us about the source of our “perfection”? 2 Samuel 22:32—34; Psalm 18:29—31; Matthew 19:20—21; Romans 12:1—3 

2. How important is the name we’re given? Do you know the meaning of your name? What, if any, impact has the awareness of that meaning had on your life?

3. Kyla struggled with making a serious mistake when she was younger. In light of such Scripture as Psalm 24:3—6, how can those of us who haven’t lived up to the requirements in this passage learn to forgive ourselves for wrong behaviors or decisions?

4. What Scriptures help you when you need to forgive yourself?

5. Rafael Murphy knew he was doing what was right in God’s eyes through his service in the Marines. And yet he was injured and disabled, unable to continue to fulfill that role. What plans or dreams have you had to let go of? What helped you do so and move forward into a different future than you’d envisioned?

6. What do the following Scriptures tell us about trusting God with our plans and dreams? Psalm 9:18; Psalm 33:10—22; Acts 2:25—26

7. Sam Ballat was consumed with bitterness because of his parents’ seemingly meaningless death. How do we reconcile the truth that God calls people to the mission field, and that may well mean they pay for that call with their lives, with the reality of His love and provision?

8. Gangs are an ever-increasing problem in our cities today. Why do young people join gangs? What can we, as believers in Christ, do to help keep the young people in our lives from falling into this kind of violence and darkness?

9. King Killa told Kyla that once you’re in a gang, you’re in for good. Blood in, blood out. You kill to get in; you die to get out. What answer can we give to someone who feels he or she is trapped so completely?

10. Kyla had a difficult time trusting Rafael, or even herself, because of the way Berto hurt her and broke her trust. Has there been someone in your life who hurt you deeply? Broke your trust? What helped you open up to trust again?

11. Kyla judged Tarik (King Killa’s younger brother) lacking simply because of his appearance. But Rafe saw something else in Tarik. He saw a young man willing to do what it would take to walk away from the life that trapped his older brother. Too often, we look at someone and assume because of how he looks or where he lives, that he’s lost. What do the following verses say about how we should see and help others who may not look or live like we do? Deuteronomy 10:17—19; 15:10; Psalm 82:3—4; James 1:27; James 2

12. What can each of us do to help young people like Tarik? Have you ever considered getting involved in a ministry that deals with inner-city youth or even a prison ministry? If not, what holds you back?

13. The Justice clan was given a legacy of faith, not just in their names, but in the examples of their parents’ lives. What can we do to leave a legacy of truth and faith for our children, or for the young people in our lives?

    a terrific inspirational thriller

    Kyla Justice¿s construction company has been a great success, but though she is making money she feels unfulfilled as she has not given anything back to society. However, an opportunity arises to do so when a church asks her to convert a dilapidated mess into a youth center. She readily agrees though she did not realize that even Job would be pressed to remain a believer.------------- The Blood Brotherhood gang does not want a youth center in their territory. The owner of the site does not want a youth center built on his property as he has other avaricious plans if the construction fails. Her boyfriend Mason does not want her building a youth center in the dangerous slums. The suppliers do not care one iota about a youth center as they want top dollar for shabby material. Three previous contractors were run off or paid to leave. Now Kyla faces sabotage and worse as she remains persistent in her mission though someone targets her for harm. Only former Army Staff Sergeant Rafael ¿Rafe¿ Murphy, a local coffee shop owner, supports her quest but he has an agenda to keep her safe he is falling in love with Kyla.------------- The latest Family Honor tale (see SHATTERED JUSTICE) is a terrific inspirational thriller that subtly conveys the biblical message of good deeds are important but one must give oneself to God to be with the Lord. Kyla is a fabulous center holding the plot together as she is a combination of fortitude and despair. She makes the tale as Karen Ball brings her biblical theme to life in a modern day urban gangland setting.-------- Harriet Klausner
