Montgomery "Monty" Graves thought he had a future full of promise, one secure in God's love. But when neighborhood hoodlums gun down his grandmother, Monty turns his back on the church, loses his faith, and begins a lifetime of struggle.

Monty shuffles between foster care homes and is expelled from numerous schools, but he never finds the peace he once had when his grandmother was alive. His two friends, Jenaye and B.J., provide one source of comfort, but it's not enough. After college, Monty lands a top corporate job, works his way up the ladder, and is promoted to vice president. He's trying to start a relationship with Jenaye, but there's something holding him back. Could it be his vendetta against God?

But God has plans for Monty, and they don't include additional wealth or success. Monty is about to be brought to his knees like never before, and he can either accept his fate or cling to the past.
