Torren Daniels has been missing for two and a half years. His wife has moved on and is in a serious relationship. His kids have accepted his death. So when he shows up on their front porch two years and six months to the day he disappeared, they're shocked and not sure how to react, mostly because Torren was a man full of platitudes and promises--which he broke 90 percent of the time--and a wicked temper. None of them can say they're truly glad he's back. Good man to the community, the business world. But behind closed doors? Not so much.
But Torren has changed. Radically changed. His wife and kids come first. He keeps his promises to them, and they truly become his priority in life. There's joy. Playfulness. Love. A real commitment to God that was only a cliche before he vanished. The man he'd always been to those outside his family is now true for them as well. He's been given a second chance. To see what life could be like if he could finally live out of the man he's always wanted to be.
Torren has absolutely no memory of the time he was away and no explanation for the change in him. He doesn't care. The old man has died and he's finally the man he's always longed to be deep down.
But as the months go on, his memory slowly returns. And the more the memories come, the more Torren slips back into being the man he was before. How can he hang on to the new man he's become? And who is he really? The man he was . . . or the man he is?
