This is a book about the effect of prostitution, whether physical or spiritual in nature, on the human spirit. It is also a story about the hope we have in Christ and the difference God makes in lives. Love can be sought after in both a right and a wrong way. One way it produces death to our beings while the other, it brings a new vibrancy to life. But its all a delicate balance and if were not careful, we can fall away from the life bringing love to the destructive kind. The Bible warns that when we think were standing, weve already fallen. Its when we feel were above people lost in worlds we deem as dirty and less than acceptable that were on the edge of the cliff. In truth, we all sin and make mistakes. Come share in Rain and Lances life journey dealing with the heartache and fallout of choosing a path away from God and His love for a life of self and gods of this world.
