More than twenty years ago a drunk driver shattered Jack Claytons family. Angry, confused and as naïve as any college freshman, he trades his small Midwestern town for another, only to find that it too is too small to contain his dreams. Or is it? Now an instrumental part of the Campus Missions Office and a New York Times Bestselling author, he makes his home in that very college town, where the past and "the one that got away" relentlessly haunt him and the future becomes increasingly uncertain thanks to a big city reporter with a malicious agenda.
Will he have to walk away from the ministry that he spent decades building? Or can he find a way to confront the rumors and set the record straight? In a race against the clock, Jack throws caution to the wind and finds that even he may deserve a second chance.

BarbVirginiaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Haunted by love, yet loving God fullyJanuary 30, 2013BarbVirginiaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have seldom found a male writer (Sorry, Guys!) who could write such a compelling story of "once in a lifetime love," and of the loss of that love through selfishness and immaturity. Jack Clayton's life is such a strong replication of what I see on my campus every year--heartache, broken homes, childish naivete, anger, fear and pain--all part of the lives of young people today.
His story is so relevant and is told so well that I could not put the book down. Thankfully, the author brings his main character to a point of powerful and poignant service for the Lord by serving others as he matures--a major step from his earlier, self-focused years.
The story is full of surprises and the ending is--well, let's just say I couldn't have been happier with the ending!
Young people have so much potential and most of them yearn to be better people. I actually did a reading from the book to my college students and I know that it touched chords in several hearts.
I trust this author will keep writing fiction--I have never given a book all 5's before! Loved it, loved it!
