About the Book

Three hundred and fifteen days; just forty-five weeks, is not a long time, less than a year. But, to Nick Hines–it was a lifetime. Three hundred and fifteen days would be all the time needed to reduce Nick from upstanding member of the community, family man, and father of two, to a convicted wife-killer. He would become a man who was considered crazy, whose children had died in separate tragic accidents, and who himself was dying as the result of a brain tumor; and all in three hundred and fifteen days.

From start to finish though, Nick held fast to his faith in his Lord, but would that be enough? He would never know. Forced to the brink he had one decision to make that would determine where his life would go from there, or simply end in one final disaster. He was at the brink, the subject of the wager, and teetering on the edge of eternity.

He married in 1978, and raised two wonderful stepchildren, and a lovely daughter, in his Lockland home.
