Product Description

Alisa Stewart feels like she's lost two sons: her youngest to a terrible tragedy and her eldest, Kurt, to a life ruined by addiction. But now Kurt has checked himself into rehab and found a healing faith that seems real. It's like he's been raised from the dead. But then a detective arrives at Alisa's door asking questions about a murder--the death of a drug dealer before Kurt entered rehab. Alisa fears losing her son again, and when she finds evidence linking him to the killing, she destroys it. Her boy is different now. He's changed and deserves a second chance. But when another man is charged with the crime, Alisa finds herself facing an impossible choice: be silent and keep her son or give up everything for the truth.

Publisher's Weekly

Cushman's (Waiting for Daybreak) latest faith-based novel begins with a jolt. As a police officer arrives on the doorstep of Alisa Stewart's home, she fears that her only living son, Kurt, has been killed in the course of his dark lifestyle, living on the streets and using drugs. Her terror is calmed when she learns her son is only needed for an investigation into the beating death of a local dealer, and she's further assuaged when Kurt himself calls to say he is now in rehab. Latching onto this unexpected and desperately needed ray of hope, Alisa is deceived by her own optimism. As past secrets are revealed, she is forced to consider justice and mercy's conflicting demands. Though Kurt's struggle dominates the novel, Alisa faces additional personal crises— her husband threatens divorce and she's tempted by the possibility of an affair. The number of crises facing her is overwhelming and at times distracts from the power of the central conflict. However, the novel offers a denouement that will satisfy evangelical Christian readers with its resolution while maintaining its reality. (Oct.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    Alisa Stewart is a mother who lost both her sons - one to death, and other to drug abuse. She has lost hope that her one son that was still alive would ever become the person he once was; happy, healthy, and the leader of every group. But when a detective arrives at her door following Kurt's call from rehab saying he's turning his life around and staying clean, she can't help but want to protect him.

    Afraid Kurt is going to loose his second chance at life, she destroys the evidence that links her son to the murder the detective keeps asking questions about. But when another woman's son is put in jail for the crime her son committed, she is faced with an impossible choice. Give up her son who has become a better person, to save a boy that didn't deserve a second chance. Will Alisa give up everything for the truth?

    At first, I was distracted by the story being told in first person, but as the book progressed it lent charm to the story and I really got into it. The contrasts between the characters that are Alisa's sons was a great pull for me in this book, and I enjoyed her character development as well as the relationship with her husband. Despite the one bad decision she made in the story, there were several she almost committed but didn't; which was to her credit and the saving of her marriage. It was a touching story of how one woman dealt with the grief of the loss of her sons, and a beautiful story how there is life after death in Jesus Christ.
