About the Book
Alex Donnelly is trying desperately to hide from his past, the police, and especially God. He picks a good place to hide – the wilderness of Canada’s Yukon, but he finds even there he is pursued by all of the above. Confronted with intriguing information and burning to know more about his real parents, Alex returns to his birthplace of Seattle, Washington, only to discover that his mother had tried to abort him. The trauma sends him on the run again, but God has orchestrated a divine appointment for him back in the Yukon. The story is filled with miraculous healing, struggles with rage, and an obsession with revenge. It illustrates that God never gives up as Alex learns that no matter how far you run, God will find you, and no matter what you have done, God will forgive you.
