Temporarily Out of Stock Online
A sixteen-year-old girl disappears from a small town in Virginia . . . A seemingly random and senseless crime begins the gradual unraveling of the family she has left behind. Emmett Sands, a spiritual leader of the tiny rural community, finds his own faith being tested by his stepdaughter's disappearance. As he struggles to help his embittered wife cope with the tragedy, he finds he must face up to some long-buried secrets of his own. The Second Life is a story of the dual nature of the lives we all lead, and it also takes an unflinching look at some of the sensitive issues everyone must face-the disintegration of relationships, the testing of true faith, living with lies, and facing their eventual consequences. But it's about more than that. It's about finding hope in the most unlikely places. It's about finding the courage to become who you truly are. And it's about discovering the true meaning of the word love.
