I loved Wisdom's character from No More Time Outs, so I was excited to find out there is now a sequel! With death hanging over Wisdom's head, he decides before he dies, he needs to set his family on the right path. Both of his brothers are still a mess, both lost to the streets.

With all odds stacked against him, Wisdom finds himself in the most challenging race of his life. Racing to save the life of his mother and redeem his dysfunctional family values. The most challenging test of all lies in attempting to redirect his father's lust and pulpit pimping.

An intense, action packed, suspenseful follow up to "No More Time Outs" that sends the message....With focus, faith and determination.....Anything Is Possible.
