Product Description

Stephen Owens was only 12 years old when the unthinkable happened. He discovered his father at home, badly beaten and gasping out his final breaths. The evidence showed that Stephen's mom, Gaile, had hired a hit man to carry out the act.
For decades Gaile and Stephen lived separate lives. Yet, through a series of remarkable life transforming events and revelations, they were brought back together. Through the power of grace they were both set free, Stephen from a prison of unforgiveness, and Gaile from the Tennessee Prison for Women.

Publisher's Description

"Gaile Owens is my mother. I am her son. Please do not take this from me. There is no justice in taking her life. There is no justice in denying the healing power of forgiveness."

Stephen Owens was 12 years old in 1985 when he discovered his father at home badly beaten and near death. Evidence proved Stephen’s mom, Gaile, had hired a hit man to carry out the murder, and she was sent to death row. Stephen and Gaile did not see each other for decades, but through an amazing series of life transformations and revelations about the tragic event, God opened a door for both of them to be set free -- one from a prison of unforgiveness, the other from a literal prison cell.

While the events surrounding Gaile Owens’ release made national headlines and have stirred widespread fascination, Set Free far exceeds the experience and expectations of a modern true crime story, proving to be much more about God as the loving author of true forgiveness.

    I tend to be skeptical about books like this; if Mr. Owens or the co-author were NOT devout christians, this book would read much differently. The story was well written, with honesty and candor. Mr. Owens had many things going for him, a strong marriage, the support of friends, a strong legal team on behalf of his mother and christians who stood by him. Others in similiar situations may not have all this on their side. I was left wondering, at the end, how his brother is doing. At least it wasnt a 'happy ever after' book; his relationship with his mother is ongoing and evolving. His constant referrals to his faith life, got a little overbearing to me; I have had many more struggles with God, over forgiveness, and didnt have his support people in place. But, a good book.

    While I really was gripped by the story, I felt there were a lot of repeat statements, it could have been told just as effectively with less words, however an amazing story.
