Blake Carmichael has one wish for the first Christmas of his new life with Christ: reconciliation with his teenage son, Eli. But after years of separation, Eli wants nothing to do with him. So when his mother forces him to stay with Blake during the Christmas holidays, Eli sneaks out to meet his girlfriend, Kelsey.
From the New Hampshire seacoast to the streets of Boston, Blake and Kelsey’s Aunt Tallia search for the kids, desperate to protect them from the sins he knows too well. But even if Blake and Tallia find them, will Blake be able to convince Eli of his love?
