Publisher's Summary

A moving story of redemption and second chances.
Jep Robertson, the youngest son of Duck Commander Phil Robertson, and his wife, Jessica, open up about their personal trials, their early years together, and the challenges that might have destroyed them both had the grace of God not intervened. Jep describes being molested as a child and his reluctance to tell anyone until only a few years ago, his downward spiral into drug and alcohol abuse, and the eventual intervention of his family. Jessica shares about the difficult failure of her first marriage while still a teenager and the hurt that came along with it, much of it from the Church. Her insecurities spun out of control, as she wondered whether she would ever be good enough or pretty enough. This book is their love story but, more importantly, their love story for God. "We are desperate to let people know that no matter what you've done, no matter what you've lived through, you can come out of it. You can be washed clean. You are redeemed."

Loved the book, wrong narrators, but get it anyway

I've enjoyed many of the Duck Dynasty books including this one. If you are a fan of the show, this book gives an amazing and very honest insight into the lives of Jep and Jessica. I commend them for their honesty. That's one of the things I love about this family, they don't pretend to be perfect...they are just themselves, they are just human. And if you are human as well (ha ha!) then no doubt, you aren't perfect either. This book will help you to understand that no matter how you may fall short of some "ideal" you are always loved by God and if you ask and mean it, you are forgiven. That's a really important message for all Christians to understand, don't you think?

I would have liked for Jessica and Jep to have read their own book themselves. I guess because I watched their show I expect to hear them speak in a certain way. The narrators are good...but just not Jep and Jessica. But I wouldn't be put off in buying the book based on this. It's too important of a message...a message of God's unending redemption and God's truly "Amazing Grace" Thank you Jep and Jessica for your example. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY
