About the Book

Narrowly escaping Desert Storm with his life, Corporal Rob Jacobs returns to southern California to his pregnant wife, Jenny, with a severely injured leg and a growing addiction to pain killers. Unable to find adequate work or acceptable pain management, Rob becomes increasingly depressed and slides deeper into addiction. Though once a hard-working, faithful, Christian husband, Rob abandons his faith and his wife as his addictions spiral out of control, ultimately leading to his incarceration. While in prison, Rob rediscovers his faith in God and repents, hoping to find restoration in Christ, but his young faith is quickly put to the test by divorce, vengeance, and AIDS.
