Miracle at a High School . . . (Excerpts from The Prodigal Diaries, Chapter 10)
Check out this preview video of "The Prodigal Diaries" by Ken Simmons
THE TRUE EVENTS that inspired this story are:
Set in the Tampa Bay area: In the 1970’s there were television news reports of a woman who was abducted during a home invasion, kidnapped, beaten and sexually assaulted. She was then bound and thrown off a bridge in Tampa Bay miles from shore, where for the entire night and all the following day she had to tread water clinging only to barnacle and mussel encrusted pilings of the bridge. During her time in the water she often had to fight off sharks in order to survive before finally being rescued by a fishing boat. The news report indicated her husband was suspected of instigating the attack.
THE FICTIONAL ACCOUNT, inspired by those true events, is set in contemporary times:
The heroine in the story is a world famous fashion model, often called the most beautiful woman in the world. She was loved by all, appeared with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show, was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, and married a paparazzi photo journalist who thought the world was his oyster having married a rich model. Shortly after she surrendered her life to Christ she was brutally attacked and her fans around the world were in shock. Her newfound faith was what sustained her through her horrific ordeal. Jeané Rose's confrontation with her attacker on death row at Raiford State Prison in Florida is an epic and stunning conclusion to this dramatic story. "It’s a whole box of Kleenex good” said one woman reader.
