Hearts Set Free
A Tale of Love, Faith, and the Glory of God’s Grace

“Bold and forthright writing that would set any heart on fire…”
—Christian Blogger Miranda A. Uyeh

Hearts Set Free weaves together three tales of men and women who journey from the darkness of doubt to triumphant faith and from the ache of loneliness to everlasting love.

In 1930, the rag-tag riffraff of a railway stop called Las Vegas need a fighting man to shepherd their tiny church after their pastor is murdered. Might David Gold, a washed-up boxer and Bible-school dropout who fights as the Pummelin’ Preacher, be the answer to their prayers?

At the same time, Luke, a native Alaskan boy, is on a quest to find his father, who has abandoned his family for a beautiful woman his warrior mother vows to kill. The journey of mother and son will lead them to the Nevada desert and to truths—and terrors—of which they’d never dreamed.

In 2011, Science Cable TV honcho Tim Faber is determined to prove that mankind has no need of God, while his producer and lover, Joan Reed, strives to regain the faith of her youth. They’re bound for Las Vegas to meet with a 99-year-old man who holds the key to a mystery they must solve—and answers that will forever change their lives.
