^ ^Life hasn't been the sugar-coated existence they might have hoped for.^ ^As they have less than forty-eight hours with each other, they decide to be vulnerable and share their greatest fears, Will they have the courage to bare their souls?


^ ^And if they do, how will such revelations be received?


^ ^Will they find a way to lift each other up or will their burdens be too much to bear

Adrian Plass

Adrian Plass has written over thirty books in the last twenty years, full of his uniquely wry observations about church and Christianity. As well as his biographical books, he has written novels, short stories, and collections of poems and sketches. His live presentations are often hilarious, often poignant, with a combination of humour, poetry and storytelling, but always warm and welcoming. He also leads BRF Quiet Days with his wife Bridget.
