Where There is Despair, Hope
Nine-year-old Pierce Emerson has been left alone after the death of his mother. After being passed from foster home to foster home, he has come to the last stop: Boyd Home. Consumed with fear and anxiety, Pierce has withdrawn into himself. Cade Dalton, lead play therapist at Boyd Home, is no stranger to trauma, but as he tries to help Pierce he must face the darkness and pain that has overpowered the child and help to bring Pierce out of it. Author Kevin Hull tells a story of spiritual healing that demonstrates the mysterious process of how a shattered self is put back together through the power of loving relationships.
