"Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison set out to change the world with their films-and they are finally seeing their dreams come true. The dedicated producers are deep in negotiations with America's top young movie star to play the lead in their next inspirational production. But the actor is linked to a studio whose brass will take any measures to see that their mega-million-dollar star doesn't take the part. In the meantime, the friends tackle another project that puts them and their assistant, Kendall Adams, on location in Arizona; far from their homes and the people who matter most to them. Chase finds himself on one side of fame-and temptation-with his wife and two daughters on the other. Back in Indiana, a crisis hits Keith's daughter, Andi, and Keith feels helpless to respond. Will the producers keep the passion they had at the start of their filmmaking-and will there be enough passion left over for their families? Or has their quest to change American culture become nothing more than a quest for fame? "

In the third of the Above the Line quartet from Christian fiction queen Kingsbury, independent filmmakers Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison find red carpet success at the premiere of their film. With the film wrapped, family drama can now take center stage. Away from the action and temptations of Tinseltown, the next generation, at school in Bloomington, Ind., faces complications and crises. Bailey Flanigan is torn between two young men, and her roommate Andi Ellison, Keith Ellison's daughter, faces the consequences of her relationship with Taz Bazzi. The current popularity of Christian and inspirational films is a topical and fresh touch for the series story line, but there's not much else that's fresh. Kingsbury continues to crank out her popular fiction, and fans will continue to purchase it, since its very predictability means readers know what to expect. (Apr.)
