Leker shares, "The Vietnam War is raging. Rick has fulfilled his obligation to his country by registering with Selective Services. But the last thing he wants is to be called up by Uncle Sam, at least not now.

Rick could hardly wait to graduate high school and leave his hometown of Tranquillity. He hated spending his summers chopping cotton. The dry ground, blistering heat, and calloused hands were a stark reminder of why he didn't want to spend his life working the fields. His father had chosen that life, but Rick knew it wasn't for him. After all, he had a higher calling. He is going to be a preacher.

Rick's first year of Bible college is a dream come true. Not only does he cherish the opportunity to study for the ministry, but he also has just met Anna.

His future was falling into place until an unforeseen chain of events leads him down a forbidden path…"
