John is a bitter, withdrawn young man who grew up hard and entered the Army. He realized he had a talent for math and writing and before exiting the Army, he sold a book to a publisher in Los Angeles. He leaves the Army to move to Los Angeles to quietly pursue his writing, never intending to have anyone interfere with his life. Yet the LORD had other plans for John and places Emily in his path, a young woman John's age who is determined to break through into his heart. Will she be able to break through into the heart of a young man whose past is as dark as his eyes were the first time they met and save him from himself before it's too late. Will a dark secret prevent her?
