Twelve years ago Matthew 'the Rocket' Rising had it all. Married to his high school sweetheart and one of the winningest quarterbacks in the history of college football, he was the number one NFL draft pick. But on the night of the draft, he plummeted from the pinnacle of esteem. Falsely accused of a heinous crime with irrefutable evidence, it seemed in an instant all was lost -- his reputation, his career, his freedom, and most devastatingly, the love of his life.

Having served his sentence and never played a down of professional football, Matthew leaves prison with one goal -- to find his wife, Audrey, whom no one has seen since the trial. He returns to an unwelcoming reception from his Gardi, Georgia, hometown to learn that Audrey has taken shelter from the media with the nuns at a Catholic school. There she has discovered a young man with the talent to achieve the football career Matthew should have had. All he needs is the right coach. Although helping the boy means Matthew violates the conditions of his release and -- if discovered -- reincarceration for life, he'll take the chance with hope of winning back Audrey's love.

The beyond talented athlete with a promising future. The athlete with the blessing of a beautiful wife to enjoy this life with. The plans, the hard work, the naysayers, the endorsements-changed in a moment. Accusations turned into convictions, a future turned into a lonely cell. If he could only clear his name. But, it is not his career he wants back. It’s his wife. In true Charles Martin fashion, this story builds upon the foundation of its characters. Both male and female readers will find common ground within this storyline. I especially enjoy Martin’s respect for marriage and it’s vows within the hardship that would tear it apart. 4* audiobook-Kevin Stilwell narrates the audiobook with the flare of a sports announcer, placing you on the field, in the interviews, in the cell. I have a hard time with male narrators being the voice of the female characters. He does a better job than some and I ended up enjoying the audiobook as well. This book is suitable for teens and older with no inappropriate intimate scenes and no bad language.
