Summary "Acclaimed novelist Jody Hedlund brings the real story of "Amazing Grace" to page in a thrilling tale of the love story of John Newton and Polly Catlett"-- Provided by publisher.
In the mid-eighteenth century as England and France stand on the brink of war, John Newton is a young sailor wandering aimlessly through life. His only duty is to report to his ship and avoid disgracing his father-- until the night he hears Polly Catlett's enchanting voice, caroling. An intense connection quickly forms between the two, but John's reckless spirit and disregard for the Christian life are concerns for the responsible, devout Polly. When an ill-fated stop at a tavern leaves John imprisoned and bound, Polly must choose to either stand by his side or walk out of his life forever.
