Sometimes the hardest person to forgive is the one in the mirror reflecting back at you. Matthew London was once a highly respected hostage negotiator for the NYPD. But then a bungled hostage scene destroyed his career. Now all London wants is to be left alone to lick his wounds. For eight years he has lived like a hermit in a declining plantation house, a broken man with a secret past. Only his talent for painting Renaissance-style paintings and murals keeps his inner demons from totally destroying him. Each day London longs for a chance at redemption, never expecting it to ever happen. But then a young girl from a nearby parish is kidnapped, and London steps out from the shadows. Recruited to help find the missing girl by a down-on-her-luck FBI agent, London quickly finds himself thrust into the starring role of a daring rescue attempt. But before London can rescue the child from her kidnappers, he first must find a way to forgive himself for a past misstep, a blunder that forever altered his once promising life. But in the Atchafalaya Basin swampland, nothing is promised. Grace cannot be earned or purchased. It can only be given.
