Set in 1904 western Colorado, Season of Forgiveness chronicles a season in the lives of western Colorado’s Jake and Emma Johnson. The Johnsons face all the challenges of ranching and raising seven sons at the turn of the twentieth century. When mysterious strangers threaten their peaceful way of life, the foundation of their faith is shaken. At the same time, the couple facilitates the transforming power of God’s love as they give shelter to Daisy and Sally, two young women struggling with tragic pasts. Emma and Jake actively display unconditional love and forgiveness while modeling a lifestyle of powerful prayer.
Using the backdrop of western Colorado beauty, adding in some local history, and interspersing the antics of seven rowdy boys, this story exposes the uncomfortable realities of incest and domestic violence – and showcases the redemptive power of God’s love and grace.
