A fast-paced novel of spiritual mystery and intrigue. Father Nate Hawthorn is already on the brink of burn-out and faithlessness when his only son, a high school senior, is killed in a car accident. Nate’s marriage fractures. Grief alienates him from everyone in his life. Nate is merely going through the motions of ministry and life when a frantic phone call, from a stranger pleading for help, prompts Nate to begrudgingly struggle through a blizzard to meet his mysterious caller at a coffee shop nearby where he learns it is his life that depends on this meeting. A homeless woman named Michelle offers Nate a gift that can transform his life if he chooses to accept it.

Eye of the Beholder invites the reader to consider how much they are shaped by others AND give shape to the people around them.
