Can a man without conscience ever really change?  Sam tells it straight about killing, love, prison, practicing recovery, the possibility of genuine friendship and the purpose of life.  In doing so, he saves his own lost self and shows the way to others.

"What a story! It was compelling from beginning to end.  I do think it's a page turner.  And his recovery is powerfully conveyed.  It serves as a great example to all of us that lives can be turned around."

   – Karen Casey, author of Each Day a New Beginning

"What a moving account, unsparingly candid, of a man turning from darkness to light. May Sam's story help those also struggling to know that love and peace are possible, even for the very lost."

- Fr. Richard Rohr, author of Falling Upward, Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

“A remarkable book. As a Veteran from the Vietnam era and a recovering alcoholic, I easily related to the man’s agonizing journey from hell back to a full and productive life. If ever one needed proof that God is alive and well and acting in our lives, and that Alcoholics Anonymous works if you work it, it’s here in these pages. He should have died many times over, and yet here he is in full recovery because of his brutal honesty about himself and his faith in a higher power. And I admire how Karin Winegar has expertly woven his story together and placed it in historical context. A great book! This one’s a keeper.”
