B&H Books Set Free: Discover Forgiveness Amidst Murder and Betrayal

Stephen Owens was only 12 years old when the unthinkable happened. He discovered his father at home, badly beaten and gasping out his final breaths. The evidence showed that Stephen's mom, Gaile, had hired a hit man to carry out the act.

For decades Gaile and Stephen lived separate lives. Yet, through a series of remarkable life transforming events and revelations, they were brought back together. Through the power of grace they were both set free, Stephen from a prison of unforgiveness, and Gaile from the Tennessee Prison for Women.

I tend to be skeptical about books like this; if Mr. Owens or the co-author were NOT devout christians, this book would read much differently. The story was well written, with honesty and candor. Mr. Owens had many things going for him, a strong marriage, the support of friends, a strong legal team on behalf of his mother and christians who stood by him. Others in similiar situations may not have all this on their side. I was left wondering, at the end, how his brother is doing. At least it wasnt a 'happy ever after' book; his relationship with his mother is ongoing and evolving. His constant referrals to his faith life, got a little overbearing to me; I have had many more struggles with God, over forgiveness, and didnt have his support people in place. But, a good book.

While I really was gripped by the story, I felt there were a lot of repeat statements, it could have been told just as effectively with less words, however an amazing story.
