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 everyoneherself includedhas 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. With funny and touching turns, this audiobook 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 angry teenager, a depressed firefighter, an anguished motherthese are only of few of the characters brought vividly to life through Pam Turlow's extraordinary skills as a narrator. An audiobook with so many characters and plot lines could be a challenge to the listener, but Turlows distinct character voices make the story easy to follow. When college professor Demi Costanas is caught in an adulterous affair, it almost destroys her career, her family, and even her own sense of self. Although the novel is filled with dramatic incidents, the truly compelling parts of this story are Demi's sessions with Christian psychologist Sullivan Crisp, during which he helps her accept her own brokenness and the healing power of God's grace."
