“You need to be tested for HIV.” Genesis Swan never expects to hear those words and definitely not from the man who vowed to love, honor, and cherish her. When her husband Kenyon reveals that he has put her body and her heart at risk, Genesis can only fathom two options: love him even though it hurts or hurt him even though she loves him. “They say if you love something, set it free. Death would be freedom for him.” The only thing Kenyon loves more than he loves himself is being loved. When his string of romances starts to unravel before his eyes, Kenyon has to choose between the wife of his youth, his erratic and jealous lover, or the barely-legal mother of his children. When death comes knocking at his door in the form of a pistol, will he have the opportunity to make the right choice or will the law of sowing and reaping cause him to lose the very thing he’s always taken for granted? …in order for God to do His best work “Sometimes, you have to suffer on purpose for purpose.” Facing divorce, depression, and a debilitating illness should have been enough to take Genesis out, but as her name suggests, that is only the beginning. With the forgiveness of God, praying parents, and the love of a man with the walk of a modern-day Boaz, Genesis must learn that even in the midst of mess, God can work miracles.
