Honest, painful and triumphant - Grace in the Wilderness is the riveting story of one man’s battle to reclaim his life from a raging drug addiction that began soon after his forced mid-air decent, a as naïve 19 year-old from the suburbs of New York, from the gunner’s door of a U.S. Army chopper into the lush green landscape of Vietnam. Unlike any other account Grace in the Wilderness chronicles the harrowing 30 year long journey of Scott Riley and his twin daughters Hasha and Libra and the labyrinth they traveled from war to recovery. His fate and theirs, triumph over tragedy, would depend greatly on the fraying wire of his will and the unconditional nature of their love for him.
Grace in the Wilderness spans the spectrum of human emotions – tours the inevitable peaks and valleys and witnesses the extreme tests of faith more common to the human experience than not. Gritty and heartwarming at the same time you will find yourself rooting for this family, and reminded of your own in some form or fashion.
A tremendous endeavor, Grace in the Wilderness reveals a kaleidoscope of complex, raw emotions that expose just how vulnerable we all are. God has truly worked a miracle in Scott's life and that of his daughters Hasha and Libra, and by way of this courageous account they provide hope for the many parents, sons, daughters and families still desperately seeking their way.
