Paul Langdon is a struggling real estate broker. By nature, he is a cautious man, and adverse to taking risks. While scouting out a tract of land that might be available for development, Paul loses his way in the woods. After wandering helplessly for several days, he is saved by the interventions of a wolf — except there are no wolves in upstate New York.
As a lukewarm Christian, Paul discovers that his faith in God has been challenged by his miraculous encounter. He begins to reassess what he truly believes. Two additional miracles, each more compelling than its predecessor, combine to strengthen his spiritual devotion. As uncertainties arise, Paul struggles to come to terms with his newfound faith. Then one day, he and his wife, Rachel, are devastated to learn that their eight-year-old daughter has a rare genetic disorder. Within eighteen months, Alicia’s immune system will begin attacking her heart. She will not survive.
Although fully expecting another miracle, Paul resolves to do everything in his power to see his daughter healed. Yet, his efforts are thwarted at every turn. His enemies conspire to block the real estate development that will pay for his daughter’s medical care. Every therapy that might offer a glimmer of hope is denied to Alicia for technical reasons. At length, Paul realizes he is out of options. He has reached the limits of his own abilities.
This story explores the nuances of genuine faith, and in light of God’s sovereignty, what trusting Him truly means.
