Redemption is a fast-paced “feel good” story of a man with a beautiful family and a promising future who is stricken with terrible calamity and recovers. Matt Dawson has everything going for him—a lovely wife, a teenage daughter, completion of a PhD, and a promising start-up company in a technology sweet spot. Then misfortune comes crushing in on him. He is framed for murder, convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment. In prison, he is attacked and suffers crippling and disfiguring injuries. His daughter disappears, and his wife commits suicide. Twenty years pass and the truth of Matt’s innocence comes out in a deathbed confession. Matt is released in the care of a beautiful and vivacious nurse, Nancy. Matt regains much of his former life, and finds that with Nancy he still has the capacity to love. He goes in search of, and recovers his daughter. Embittered by his lost years in prison, Matt tries to return his life back to exactly the way it was before he was framed. His bitterness threatens his relationship with Nancy. In the end, Matt arrives at the realization that he can’t live in the past, that he must accept what happened and move on from there. With that realization, Nancy returns to his life, and they both find happiness. From the boardrooms of modern commerce, to the helplessness of prison, to sailing on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, as you join Matt on his life’s journey, you’ll share his despair and rejoice in his restored life and love. Above all, this is a story of God’s redemptive power in his enduring love for us.
