About this Book
Grayson Getter's daughter, Lonette, was once as doted and loving as
a daughter could be. Raising her as a widowed dad, Grayson was certain
that Lonette would be a dedicated woman of God, as devoted to God as she
had been to her father.
All that changed by the time she turned
thirteen years old and began to discover how "uncool" it was to have
such a close relationship with both her heavenly and earthly fathers.
Their relationship deteriorates until, after an argument, Lonette
suddenly leaves her father's house and moves in with her boyfriend.
Grayson feels immediate regret and pines to have his daughter return
home again. But he refuses to seek her out, believing that, just as she
had made the decision to move out, she must make the decision to return.
And he felt the Lord urging him not to interfere in any way.
Unbeknownst to him, his daughter has discovered some disturbing things
about her boyfriend and is now in danger. Will her father obey God and
allow things to run their course? Or will he break down and try to
contact her, especially since a D.C. cop has given him the heads-up that
she might be in danger?
Interwoven throughout this suspenseful
faith-based short story are themes of forgiveness, parenthood, the
virtues of being obedient to God despite the odds, and the fact that
despite how far we may go, God is always there, in often amazing yet
unknown ways, to guide us.
