"New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin's breathtaking novel of love and redemption. Charlie Finn had to grow up fast, living alone by age sixteen. Highly intelligent, he earned a life-changing scholarship to Harvard, where he learned how to survive and thrive on the outskirts of privileged society. That skill served him well in the cutthroat business world, as it does in more lucrative but dangerous ventures he now operates off the coast of Miami. Charlie tries to separate relationships from work. But when his choices produce devastating consequences, he sets out to right wrongs, traveling to Central America where he will meet those who have paid for his actions, including a woman and her young daughter. Will their fated encounter present Charlie with a way to seek the redemption he thought was impossible--and free his heart to love one woman as he never knew he could?"-- Provided by publisher

Agree with everyone's comments about what an excellent book this is. I found it very refreshing to read "adventure and romance" from a man's point of view. My husband's curiosity was piqued and he ended up enjoying it as much as I did.

Another compelling story...every scene's description puts the reader right there participating and experiencing in the action. One of the critics states that the author Charles Martin is a "romantic" writer...when I looked up romantic, the definition that worked for me was "an idealized view of reality"which was part of this plot. The first definition was "expression of love"...which this book truly expressed in a love for humanity expressed by the characters and frankly, with such divine abilities expressed through the human spirit. I am grateful that I could read this book and ponder it.

At the end of the book, Mr. Martin wrote about his personal indifference (as expressed in the book) to the plight of people who were poor, who lived in squalor, and who had lost "hope" and that his own indifference had made a radical shift. It has also inspired my pondering of my own indifference and how to shift it.

Made me think about what I am doing with my life, and how my choices have resulted in situations that could have been avoided. Excellent book - highly recommend!

One of those books that you wish would never quit. A good story about a man who redeems a wasted life, by giving back to others. It reminds us of the need to give back to others and the value of relationships. A fantastic story.

Charles Martin is one of my favorite authors. I've enjoyed every book I've read by him. All his books have touched my heart, including this one. A good story of redemption that will leave you wanting to be a better person.
