Jordan Riley was 13 when his mother died, and he and his sister were separated. Rejecting God, he filled the holes in his soul with anger. Now a successful lawyer, Jordan sues his hometown to remove a religious statue---and encounters surprising opposition from Faith Evans, a young newscaster. There's something strangely familiar about her. . . .
