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. With funny and touching turns, this audiobook 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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/9/2014

    " Couldn't put this book down till it was finished. It had such a wonderful message of forgiveness. There was a fantastic twist that I loved. I highly recommend reading this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 1/16/2014

    " I'm just getting back into reading fiction and this book was above average for Christian fare but does not match Francine Rivers' Redeeming Love, which is still my favorite book. I enjoyed the "psychology" and the story has a few twists and turns to keep you guessing. Slow in some parts and I didn't really connect to a few of the characters. The main character was strong and grew throughout the book. The messages of redemption and "those without sin can cast the first stone" are woven in the storyline nicely. I would recommend this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeancincoski | 12/31/2013

    " It was ok, but predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianna | 11/22/2013

    " A nice, easy read with mystery and a message. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanie | 11/22/2013

    " Well if you ever want to know what goes on in a counseling session with a story to boot with twists and turns and surprises, with a little theology mixed in. Or should I say, Game show theology. The story itself was engaging and you were able to see how the characters developed from begining to end. It's one of the stories that anyone can learn something about themselves and how they process afflictions. The theology was a little weak. I thought the story did not reveal the glory of God. I thought it came up short when it came to the things of God and big on humanism "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 11/21/2013

    " What drew me to this book was this quote from the back description, "...the two begin an uplifting, uneven jouney filled with healing and grace." I really needed to hear a story that was centered around serving God. This story touched my heart and renewed my spirit. The characters were all interesting and strong in their own ways. I will recommend this book to my friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shari | 11/1/2013

    " This book is about grace. It's one of the better Christian novels I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Hillen | 10/28/2013

    " Great book, I love Christian based novels that reinforce my belief in Chrsist. I would definately recommend this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 10/12/2013

    " Really gripping story of redemption. Redemption neither easily given nor easily accepted, making it a fun story to read. Really good writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie Teeling | 8/24/2013

    " Captivating plot, great insights, loved this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 7/14/2013

    " The writing is over-dramatic and out-landish but the story sucked me in. I have a few quibbles with the theology too...but overall, I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olean Public Library | 5/22/2013

    " A book about love, betrayal, and trust. A Christian counselor taking time for healing on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 5/5/2013

    " It was a good book, but it had one of those Nicholas Sparks predictability feel to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Estelle | 11/27/2012

    " Marital affairs are brought about by a deep dissatisfaction in a marriage and are usually detrimental. A better way to resolve the problem is to seek counseling before there is this added rupture. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sdownes | 11/11/2012

    " Meh, kindof got boring and predictable. Simple fast read though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanna | 11/6/2012

    " I highly recommend this book. What a reminder of how we are all in need of the grace of Jesus Christ and His healing of forgiveness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanna | 7/7/2012

    " I liked this book, especially the idea of weaving the counseling through a novel rather than a self-help book. The writing style was simplistic but I enjoyed taking the journey with the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 3/17/2012

    " I loved this book! It had many surprises in the story keep you interested. A faith building story. The author makes you feel involved with the characters. I cried a few times! "

    " There was a twist I didn't expect at the end...I like it when that happens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 3/20/2011

    " This was a beautiful book about healing and redemption. Finding oneself forgiven in the midst of not wanting to forgive. I recommend it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marsha | 1/20/2011

    " GREAT book - about Demetria and Rich - Demetria's fall in her marriage and her journey with Christian counselor Sullivan Crisp back to forgiveness and finding her identity in Christ - excellent book - well written - very explosive and unexpected endings "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janeen | 5/3/2010

    " I think that author(s) have jumped into the conflict a little too quickly and nothing really developed. The plot dragged on for the rest of the book, and nothing substantial happened until the very end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Masters | 3/24/2010

    " Loved the Sullivan Crisp character, glad this is a trilogy!! "
