Wounded: A Love Story

About the Book

Wounded: A Love Story

Poor in health but rich in faith, Gina Merritt --- a young, broke, African American single mother --- sits in a pew on Ash Wednesday and has a holy vision. When it fades, her palm is bleeding. Anthony Priest, the junkie sitting beside her, instinctively touches her when she cries out, but Gina flees in shock and pain.

A prize-winning journalist before drugs destroyed his career, Anthony is flooded with a sense of well-being and knows he is cured of his addiction. Without understanding why, Anthony follows Gina home to find some answers.

Together they search for the truth behind this miraculous event and along the way cross paths with a skeptical evangelical pastor, a gentle Catholic priest, a certifiable religious zealot, and an oversized transvestite drug dealer, all of whom lend their opinion. It’s a quest for truth, sanity, and grace... and an unexpected love story.
