about

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Gripping, intriguing" This is a story about a Christian college professor who has been having an affair with a colleague and the devastation it brings to her and her family. Demi goes "one last time" to break off the affair but ends up being captured by a photographer in a passionate embrace. The pictures are secretly delivered to her husband and the college. She is forced to resign from her job and move out of her home. The Christian psychologist who helps Demi, also uncovers some mysteries, including who took and delivered the pictures. As he works with her, he works out his own healing of past tragic events in his life. There are many characters and relationships portrayed in this book, each with their own story of pain. This is a story of how God works in peoples' lives and through their hurts to bring strength and healing. This is an excellent book; I enjoyed the read. I felt drawn into the story and the characters' lives. There are many interesting characters and sub-plots; an outstanding book that was hard to put down.
