What ties us down, holds us back, and keeps us prisoners in our own lives? Michael, Ken, Jennifer, and Joe all find their lives intricately entwined as they search for the answers to those very questions. All-too human, they falter, fall back, and then they find the key. Auto mechanic, bank robber, supermodel, and priest - each one of them is so different from the other yet they each come to the same conclusion: forgiveness is the path to joy in this life, salvation in the next, and the love of God everlasting. Sharon Gricol expertly weaves a tapestry of the every man's quest, filling the pages of her novel with richly patterned, true-to-life characters and a message for our time.
