For Seattle architect Heather Hampton, a trip back to tiny Moses Lake, Texas, is hardly in the plan. Yet because a promotion hinges on the sale of the family farmland, Heather heads to the last place she ever wanted to go. She’s determined to return home, signed contract in hand, the next day.
But the currents of Moses Lake take visitors on unexpected journeys. As Heather’s stay lengthens, she discovers a family steeped in secrets and an unexpected connection to local banker Blaine Underhill, despite his opposition to Heather’s project. With each new revelation and question, Heather can’t help but wonder if the handsome banker–and the family she has come to know again–are crooks or crusaders. Somehow she must find out the truth before she loses everything she has worked for and everything she’s found on the shores of Moses Lake.

Michael Green expected many things from his 38th year: to redeem a failed acting/music/writing career, to build upon friendships and church relationships, and most of all, to finally meet someone. He’d been looking—and waiting—a long time.
What he didn’t expect was to get arrested for a DUI, driving home from a church dinner. That changed everything. It was a shame, too. Two weeks earlier, he had met someone.
“Arresting Grace” is the story of Michael Green’s DUI arrest, as well as his long distance relationship with Jessie, a charming woman from the Bay Area. Thoughtfully written and raw, with unflinching honesty, Arresting Grace recalls such works as Donald Miller’s “Blue Like Jazz” and Anne LaMott’s “Grace (Eventually)”. A man searches for answers most earnestly when he’s brought low. This is the story of a man, fallen lower than imaginable, searching for God in the midst…and finding grace in the most unexpected places.
