With one flash of a camera, Demi’s private life becomes public news. She doesn’t know it yet, but her healing has just begun.
Christian college professor Demitria Costanas had vowed to end her affair with a colleague. But she gives into temptation one last time . . . and a lurking photographer captures her weakness for all to see. Quite literally, she’s the woman caught in adultery. And almost everyone—herself included—has a stone to throw.
Enter Sullivan Crisp, a decidedly unorthodox psychologist with his own baggage. He’s well-known for his quirky sense of humor and incorporation of “game show” theology into his counseling sessions. And yet there’s something more he offers: hope for a fresh start.
Reluctantly the two of them begin an uplifting, uneven journey filled with healing and grace. By turns funny and touching, this story explores the ways humans hurt each other and deceive themselves. And it shows the endlessly creative means God uses to turn stones of accusation and shame into works of beauty that lead us onto the path of healing.
An auspicious debut for a candid yet tender series about pain, healing, and God’s invitation for second chances.
“A story of refining one’s faith in a world of sin and temptation. It just might change your life. It has certainly changed mine.” —Angela Hunt, author of Daughter of Cana
