Award-winning author Vanessa Davis Griggs weaves a powerful tale of love, hope and redemption. 50-year-old politician Lawrence Simmons founds his policies on strong family values. But when a woman called Gabrielle Mercedes unexpectedly steps back into his world she drops a bombshell that could shatter the image he so carefully crafted. He knows that if word gets out that he fathered an illegitimate child with the 18 year old friend of his oldest daughter, it'll end his career and quite possibly his marriage...

display_description How far will faith and love go when an ambitious man finds himself in the fight of his life--with a woman who knows the other side of goodness all too well. Fifty-year-old Alabama congressman Lawrence Rudolph Simmons will do whatever it takes to get re-elected--even switch parties from Democrat to Republican. With the political tide turning, Lawrence feels it's his best shot--along with his charisma, solid twenty-nine year marriage, and three great kids. But a buried secret from his past is about to be resurrected. It's been eight years since Gabrielle Mercedes gave up her baby for adoption. But when she learns the child desperately needs a bone marrow transplant, she doesn't hesitate to contact the congressman. Like Lawrence, Gabrielle will fight for what she wants, even if it means the truth could ruin someone else's life and career.--Back cover.
