He presumes his artistic brilliance deserves a lavish life of independence, fast cars and drop-dead gorgeous women. Thomas Hall wants it all and more. But God has other plans. When “Cass” the woman from the Healing Place, walks into Thomas’s life, nothing can ever be the same again. Thomas finds himself faced with a challenge he could have never imagined, suspended between one client’s flat denial of the existence of God and the undaunted faith of a little girl named Christina.
