TEMPE, ARIZONA: Brad Adams' brother, Joshua, has just been released from prison
after being held on false charges of terrorism. His mother has married a man the
whole family loves and respects. Things are finally returning to normal after the
havoc wreaked when the boys' father chose to squirm his way back into their lives as
he was dying of cancer. Then their mother and her new husband are killed in a plane

The death of his mother sends Brad into a spiral of depression. Poised to lose his
wife and thinking he's already lost his job, he decides to end it all by flinging
himself from the side of the Grand Canyon. His trip there turns into a journey of
self-discovery and spiritual exploration, and he returns home rejuvenated; ready to
start life anew. His family, bitter about his decision to leave, is reluctant to
take him back, and Brad finds his fledgling faith tested. It also becomes clear
that his family's wrath is not the biggest obstacle Brad must overcome. He is
forced to face one final set of demons that have the power to destroy all the
progress he's made and all the plans he cherishes for his family's future.

"Kolocotronis' epic family saga of despair, revenge, bitterness, hope, love, and
faith takes its place alongside Roots, The Magnificent Ambersons, The Forsyte Saga,
and The Thorn Birds."
-Pamela K. Taylor, Director, Islamic Writers Alliance
