With one flash of a camera, Demi's private life becomes public news. She doesn't know it yet, but her healing has just begun.
Christian college professor Demitria Costanas had vowed to end her affair with a colleague. But she gives into temptation one last time...and a lurking photographer captures her weakness for all to see. Quite literally, she's the woman caught in adultery. And almost everyone--herself included--has a stone to throw.
Enter Sullivan Crisp, a decidedly unorthodox psychologist with his own baggage. He's well-known for his quirky sense of humor and incorporation of "game show" theology into his counseling sessions. And yet there's something more he offers...hope for a fresh start.
Reluctantly the two of them begin an uplifting, uneven journey filled with healing and grace. By turns funny and touching, this story explores the ways humans hurt each other and deceive themselves. And it shows the endlessly creative means God uses to turn stones of accusation and shame into works of beauty that lead us onto the path of healing.
An auspicious debut for a candid yet tender series about pain, healing, and God's invitation for second chances.

It was so captivating that I read it in 1 weekend! It is very well written and the ending was great. This book brings to light what Jesus said,"He that is without sin, let him cast the first stone."
Lisa5 Stars Out Of 5October 9, 2009LisaWhat an awesome book!! A definite 5 star book in my opinion!! I enjoyed reading of a woman who made mistakes (which we all do) and took full responsibility to change her life and make it right again with the Lord and her family. Sin is sin..and it made me think twice of times when I've thought one sin worse than another. ALL sin grieves the Lord..yet he offers his priceless forgiveness as we repent before him...He wipes the slate clean. Very powerful book...it will make you think!!
