The Potter's Hands
Andrew McBeth, Police Chief of Elmton, has been asked to rescue a woman from a gang. Finding Phoebe Knight isn’t hard. What is hard is trying to stay alive and find out who wants her dead. Thinking the only way to keep her safe is to marry her, Andrew plunges headlong into marriage. Running for their lives, chased by enemies they can’t identify, they rely on Andrew’s fellow officers and a security team to provide them safety. Mute for the first few weeks until Andrew is hurt, Phoebe finds she was abducted as a child. Into the mix are the parents who raised her, who are deep into money laundering, fraud, and drug manufacturing. Andrew and Phoebe come to realize that they are clay in God’s hands and that, as the Master Pottery, He is molding them into His beautiful persons.
