Description

When John Avery Whittaker returns from a lengthy stay in the Middle East, the entire town of Odyssey turns out for a joyous homecoming celebration with fanfare and fireworks. But for Jack, Whit’s arrival means an uneasy reunion- and a tough decision about the future. Then, the phrase “fools rush in” takes on new significance for Eugene when he neglects to seek God’s direction in his relationship with Katrina. Where will God’s plan lead them next?
