Carl Weber takes readers back to church in his latest drama-filled novel, the much anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Choir Director.
It has been three years since Aaron Mackie succeeded in helping his friend and mentor, Bishop T. K. Wilson, get his ministry out of financial ruin. Aaron is also responsible for re-energizing the almost defunct choir into something special. His success has drawn national attention, and he's on the verge of signing a huge recording contract. With his life in order, Aaron decides the time is right to propose to Tia Gregory, the church secretary who caught his eye and inspired him to shed his Tiger Woods–like tendencies to become a one-woman man. The stage is set for what might be the wedding of the year but quickly becomes the disaster of the year when Aaron is left at the altar without explanation.
Now, during his own hour of need, Aaron turns to the bishop for help. Unfortunately, the line that he asks T. K. to cross will force the bishop to choose between faith and friendship, or as he puts it, "between heaven and hell." And as the investigation into Tia's disappearance continues, the two men are challenged in ways they never imagined.
