The second book featuring quirky psychologist Sullivan Crisp is as stunning as the first. The shocking, gripping story, coupled with realistically broken characters, adds up to another triumph. The clear spiritual message about God's love despite our weakness is stellar.

Lucia Coffey feels invisible behind the superstar persona of her gifted sister Sonia, the figurehead of a worldwide ministry. Even Lucia's husband, Chip, has gone to work for Sonia after experiencing some troubles. Next to Sonia, Lucia feels fat, ugly and untalented. But all that changes instantly with a terrible accident. Barely able to cope, Lucia begins counseling with Sullivan Crisp and discovers some unsettling things about herself. Does she have the courage to be transformed?
