Christy Award-winning author Angela Hunt delivers an unforgettable, critically acclaimed tale that explores how materialism, beauty, and prestige often mask reality. Every year for two decades, David Payne invites his five closest college friends to travel with him on a weeklong humanitarian mission. And each year, they are too busy. This year, however, when David's funeral re-unites them, they decide to fulfill his mission to a far-flung Pacific island. But something unplanned and mind-boggling occurs.
