“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.”—Matthew 13:44
Lucy and Steve Sinclair have moved into their dream home in Washington, D.C. The young, successful couple is expecting their first child, but within one month their world implodes. Steve becomes sick, disappears and is found dead. Shortly after, their baby is born needing life-saving cardiac surgery.
Lucy is falsely accused of killing her husband in the most public of forums by her very own Judas—a man who she once called her best friend. And all because of a chance find, of items hidden in the darkest and deepest recess of their attic
Why has life suddenly turned so sour? Lucy’s only clue is a torn and scribbled note, citing ‘Matthew 13:44,’ which she finds on her husband’s desk. Given he’s a non-believer, like her, this makes no sense. He’s never even held a Bible in his life.
Condemned by the very people who should be supporting her, Lucy must discover and expose the real perpetrators. In doing so, it becomes hard to know who she can trust.
Alone and in the midst of this chaos, a chance lifeline is thrown, tethered to a stranger; a man she has never met but feels blissfully familiar with, who helps her discover her true purpose in life and how—like the very Passion itself—ultimate good can come from the very worst of circumstances.
In an ever more secular world where divine fate is passed off as chance, Matthew 13:44 is a gripping account of one woman’s struggle to discover her faith, her purpose and her plan; a divine plan.
Scott Coren lives in London, England with his wife and two children.
