So when one of her students confides that she's been sexually abused by a teacher and is terrified of what he'll do if she tells, Lydia is devastated: the student claims the abuser is Charlie. Now Lydia is legally bound to report the girl's charges. What happens next will test her love, her resolve to uncover the truth, and her belief in the power of faith to comfort, redeem, and heal.
