There are seminal moments in peoples’ lives which change everything. For Tom Muir it was the revelation of deceit by his wife and the emotional collapse that followed. This dark period in his life started taking him places he never expected. Torn apart and absolutely confused, he began to question everything.

He began to experience an avalanche of tragedies that brought him to his knees emotionally and spiritually. Even his childhood faith was at risk as he had to face his inadequacies. Our own shortcomings can be hard to face, but Tom’s transparency makes the prospect easier. Baring his heart, he reveals the brutality of his father and the chaos that came with a mother struggling with alcoholism.

Tom has a ‘Job’ moment when he lets go of everything in search for the truth. He feels that the cost of his suffering is too high not to learn from it. It is in this place of total surrender that he experiences a cathartic insight: pain is inevitable, but how we respond to it is everything.

Readers will gain hope when they see that their real identity can be free from the baggage of the past and they can believe for a better future.
