After spending his entire life aching for his mother’s love, Cap Martin is suffering from her bitter dying words—“How I hate you.” He has little reason to believe it isn’t true.
Cap has always been a survivor. As a boy, he wrestled with an uncertain future at the hands of his brutal, alcoholic father. As a man, he has established his place in the world with the help of Lara, the woman he loves. Together, they have endured family tragedy more than once—bringing them both to their knees and to the gospel. But Cap’s newfound spiritual knowledge only reinforces his desire to understand his mother—a tormented woman whose love has always been elusive.
A story of ordinary people learning to deal with loss and heartache, Last Words takes you into the richly human lives of the Martin family on a journey full of hope, toward understanding and forgiveness. [from publisher website]
