About the Book

In the time it took him to drive through a stoplight at the Four Corners of Law, Dr Landon Ratliff—distracted by the finest birthday present he’d ever received and wouldn’t remember—had his midlife crisis delivered to him in an instant. His journey through illness and injury and suffering and healing and love and redemption takes him places he’s visited before and places he’s never been.

About the Author
