Part One is one of betrayal and a path that leads into darkness. The path traces the author's life from sixteen to twenty-seven years old, and starts with the first two women he dated. He was Catholic then, and lonely.
Part Two chronicles his time with Carolyn: how they met, how the Lord transferred all the love he had for the first woman he dated to Carolyn. It's about how she gave him four wonderful children, only to find out she had cancer when the last child was born. This is about how he lost everything-even his belief in the Lord. But he kept a promise that his late wife asked of him: "Keep the kids all together, under your roof, and take them to Sunday school and church. If you do those two things, the Lord will forgive all the rest."
Part Three tells of how he meets his present wife of thirty-two years and how she married into a family that had four kids-when she only had one. It visits how they started and built their business through the years. It also tells of the hurt and pain that came with the death of two sons, and how the man did not get angry with the Lord, despite how little help he received from his family.
