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. Download and start listening now!
