Based on the film Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day, executive-produced by T.D. Jakes, this novel follows the lives of a couple whose love and commitment are tested when their only child is kidnapped right from under them in their gated community in New Orleans.
David, a respected college professor, and his wife, Kari, appear to be the perfect churchgoing prosperous couple when their young daughter is abducted. The police immediately launch an investigation and set out to find the child of this high-profile couple. Reports surface of a serial kidnapper on the loose with a pattern of killing his victims on the seventh day, so there’s no time to waste. In pursuit of information relevant to the case, the police uncover startling information about Kari. Now Kari’s past threatens her marriage and challenges the couple’s capacity to forgive.
New York Times bestselling author T.D. Jakes pens a compelling story that unites love, suspense, and faith into one heart-wrenching package.
David Ames could make a woman forget herself. Kari knows because it just happened a few minutes ago on this quiet Sunday morning. Surrounded now by the hot water and steam of the shower, she reflects on the last hour and the intimate moments with her husband.
It feels good to forget. To just let go. Yet lately, it seems Kari hasn’t been letting go as much as she’d like. Perhaps this is just what happens when a couple has been married for eight years. The thrill of a touch or a kiss is too often overshadowed by the needs of a child or the demands of a job. With her eyes closed, Kari knows it’s more than that. It will always be more than that.
