Chris Young is a husband, father, and convert to the Mormon Church. He is also part of a dinner club, a group of four couples who get together each Saturday night. Life has been good for Chris, but he is about to get a wake-up call he will never forget.
While his wife suffers a severe crisis of faith, he struggles with his auto-transport business, the needs of his three children, a mystifying father, and the possibility that his friends may not be friends after all. Through all this, however, he keeps his chin up and his humor intact. While careening from woe to woe, Chris begins to learn what love and faith really are and why they become lasting only after severe trials. He also learns that another Friend is anxious to travel with us, if we will only let Him.
