When a beautiful married woman walks into Pastor Daniel Vedra's life and conjures up memories of his first wife, Jitka, he struggles with the chaos the affair creates for his wife, his children, his vocation, and his future

Blackwell North Amer
Pastor Daniel Vedra has a good wife, three children, a full life. He preaches, cares for his family and his congregation, ministers to prisoners, and is a sought-after commentator on the problems facing the rapidly changing society of the Czech Republic. But privately he struggles with the knowledge that he has never recaptured the depth of intimacy he had with his first wife, Jitka, who died suddenly and young.
On the day that his mother dies, a beautiful married stranger comes to hear him preach. As their relationship reintroduces him to the intimacy he knew with his lost Jitka, Daniel finds his heart reawakening. But their affair will lead him to betray everything he has lived for: his family, his vocation, and his future. Set in a Czech Republic in the throes of complete social and economic upheaval, the order that had underpinned Daniel's life falls apart, his intimacy with God splintered by that which he has found with another man's wife.
