Set Free: Discover Forgiveness Amidst Murder and Betrayal

Stephen Owens and Ken Abraham. B&H, $14.99 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-1-4336-8023-6
Gaile Owens hired a hit man to murder her husband and was sentenced to death in Tennessee. Her son Stephen spent a good part of his life estranged from her and refusing to participate in the effort to get her sentence commuted. The murder left the adult Stephen a tormented man, trying to cope with its effects on his life: his marriage, his children, his employment, his relationships. Stephen's Christian convictions slowly come to ally him with the secular world of lawyers and journalists trying to help his mother. This tale of ultimate mercy is very slow in developing. A few lucky relationships with influential people in Tennessee help save Gaile's life. "Forgiveness is not merely an isolated action; it is a continuous attitude," the author concludes. This book will appeal to people of faith looking for a story of redemption. (Oct.)
