Publisher's Summary

Christopher Yuan, the son of Chinese immigrants, discovered at an early age that he was different. He was attracted to other boys. As he grew into adulthood, his mother, Angela, hoped to control the situation. Instead she found that her son and her life were spiraling out of control - and her own personal demons were determined to defeat her.

Years of heartbreak, confusion, and prayer followed before the Yuans found a place of complete surrender, which is God's desire for all families. Their amazing story, told from the perspectives of both mother and son, offers hope for anyone affected by homosexuality.

    "Excellent book; honest and full of hope."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    By accident, I came upon this book. I am so glad; I have more understanding for individuals who struggle with same sex attraction. Christopher Yuan writes clearly and honestly about his journey to finding true love and purpose in Jesus Christ! Angela Yuan writes from a parent's perspective with sensitivity and love for her son. One of the best Christian autobiographical books I've read!! I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

    "Amazing story of redemption!"

    This is the most amazing true story of the prodigal son and God's grace. I am deeply grateful that Christopher and his mother decided to write their story for others like me to never loose hope in seeing their child surrender to the Lord and come back home. This is a must read, it is essential!!
