His whole life has been a story of hurt and rejection. Is one family’s love enough to turn it all around?

Josh lost his parents in a drunk-driving accident and lost track of his two brothers after a tragic fire. By age eighteen, he is an angry young man who only wants a job, an apartment, and to be left alone. Instead, he meets Mike and Anna, an unusual son-and-mother team who draw him into their lives. For the first time, Josh receives unconditional love and something every human being craves, the gift of “the blessing.”

But tragedy strikes again, and a shocking secret is revealed. Can Josh hang on to what he’s learned about blessings, curses, and family?

I read this in about 3 hours and loved every minute of it...thought I knew what was going to happen and got a big surprise at the twist in the end! "

    " I liked this. The story was a little contrived, but for the purposes of teaching it had to be. I don't know if I'll have time to go over the study questions, but I hope to. Thanks Stacy! "
