–In a world filled with images of broken lives, and broken relationships, Joshua’s story bleeds the beauty of true love onto this canvas.
After carrying his bride through her illness, Joshua finds himself fighting for his marriage and the well being of his two children. He must now step through the pain of a betrayal he did not deserve. Along the way he uncovers the value of surrendering things that seem important and grasping for the things that truly are.

“Stephen Santos opens his heart, exposes his pain and grief like few authors are able to do. He doesn’t try to hide from the ugly realities that challenge his walk with Christ and seek to draw him from the path that leads to life. He is easy to read and what he says is worth reading. Do not be surprised when truth suddenly blooms before you with the beauty of a magnificent flower or when grief in a failing effort attacks the logic of your faith. In the end you will be wonderfully refreshed.”
“N tells a story of a groom relentlessly pursuing his wayward bride –a down-to-earth, gritty and painful search for true love and a family lost. Along the way, we’re filled with wisdom, struggle alongside another as she wrestles to receive love and reminded of the importance of adventure in our everyday lives. Unless we’re constantly on guard, it’s easy to get swept up in the tidal wave of culture that places ultimate value on the destination.
N sets us on the path toward truth. In a sense, it begins the re-orientation process that so importantly reminds us of the value of the journey. And of the power of a selfless love that is focused on grace and surrender.”

“No journey of the heart is for the weak-willed. It is in the vulnerable places we find what has been hidden, wounded and lost. These vulnerable places are not an option on the path. But are they bad? Or are they the doorway to true intimacy and the deep rooted love we all long for but often doubt we deserve? May we all find ourselves knit in between the plot and pages of this story, and in so doing, find a coming home.”
