Product Description

Twelve years ago Matthew "the Rocket" Rising had it all. Married to his high school sweetheart and one of the winningest quarterbacks in the history of college football, he was the number one NFL draft pick. But on the night of the draft, he plummeted from the pinnacle of esteem. Falsely accused of a heinous crime with irrefutable evidence, it seemed in an instant all was lost--his reputation, his career, his freedom, and most devastatingly, the love of his life.Having served his sentence and never played a down of professional football, Matthew leaves prison with one goal--to find his wife, Audrey, whom no one has seen since the trial. He returns to an unwelcoming reception from his Gardi, Georgia, hometown to learn that Audrey has taken shelter from the media with the nuns at a Catholic school. There she has discovered a young man with the talent to achieve the football career Matthew should have had. All he needs is the right coach. Although helping the boy means Matthew violates the conditions of his release and--if discovered--reincarceration for life, he'll take the chance with hope of winning back Audrey's love.

Author Bio

He lives with his wife, Christy, and their three sons in Jacksonville, Florida.

Editorial Reviews

"A beautiful story of love, redemption, and football. A winning combination."—Library Journal
"Martin is the new king of the romantic novel. . ..A Life Intercepted is a book that will swallow you up and keep you spellbound."—Jackie K Cooper, Book Critic, The Huffington Post
"This deeply personal labor of love has all of the hallmarks of Martin's amazing writing....[D]on't miss this wonderfully written book."—RT Book Reviews
"A touching tale of love, loss, and redemption."—Booklist
"Charles Martin's latest, A Life Intercepted, takes the football novel to the next level....A modern classic."—The Florida Times-Union
"Could easily be ripped from today's headlines. A moving story of lost dreams, unending love, truth seeking and in the end, inspiring redemption. This one is not to be missed!"—Michael Morris, author of Man in the Blue Moon and A Place Called Wiregrass
"Martin's story charges headlong into the sentimental territory-and best-seller terrain-of The Notebook, which doubtless will mean major studio screen treatment."—Kirkus (starred review) on Unwritten
"A spellbinding novel...Charles Martin took the threads of his storyline and wrapped them around my heart. His unforgettable characters captivate as they confront their hidden pasts and build upon their futures with faith, friendship, and grace." Elin Hilderbrand, author of Beautiful Day on Unwritten
"Charles Martin's latest novel brings to mind the storytelling traditions of Nicholas Sparks and John Grisham. UNWRITTEN is a novel for the heart but it's also one of adventure....UNWRITTEN is a page turner and has all the ingredients to become a box office smash."Michael Morris, author of Man in the Blue Moon on Unwritten
"I found Unwritten one of those strangely beautiful, exotically original novels whose substance dawns slowly to the reader's consciousness like a glorious sunrise. Do not start this book unless you have time to savor, reflect, and renew. Do, if you have space to fit a memorable reading experience into your life."Leila Meacham, author of Tumbleweeds on Unwritten
