Martin Gilmore knows about the power of forgiveness. With help from family and friends, he transforms himself from an angry man, damaged by a childhood incident involving a teacher, to a new man experiencing joy for the first time in Christ’s redemption. That spiritual walk involves hard choices.
As a single dad to his two grown children who strives to achieve integrity in the workplace while dealing with his feelings for his fiancée, Linda, Martin knows the test of a refiner’s fire where life hangs in balance. So far, those experiences strengthened him. But will his trust in God last when he faces challenges?
When sixteen-year-old Simon enters the picture, Martin feels like he’s looking into a mirror and seeing his old flawed self all over again. The young runaway is a thief, a substance abuser, and a truant, who hates his missing father.
Simon’s unexpected kidnapping draws Martin into a dark, sinister world of illicit activities. Can he rescue Simon and his father? Can Martin finally overcome the smoldering embers of failure trying to reignite within him?
