On a typical weekday morning in a peaceful suburb of Akron, Ohio, the town awakes to discover that Rachel Turner and her son Evan have been brutally murdered during the night. A short while later, Danny Turner is found in his car at the bottom of a ravine, after having taken his own life. Any explanation as to why a loving father and husband would suddenly commit a series of such heinous crime has gone to the grave with the accused.
The mystery only deepens as the details of the murders emerge, and evidence of premeditation as well as Danny’s hidden past are revealed.
Subsequently, Rachel’s closest friend, Carolyn Bianci sinks into a deep depression, while her husband, Mitch, copes with the despair by attempting to uncover the facts of the crime. Eventually they encounter Joanna Larson, a fascinating woman who possesses extraordinary spiritual gifts. Through Joanna, the truth about the events that took place the night of the murders is unveiled. The answers Mitch and Carolyn get are beyond their human understanding.
Inspired by true events, The Ravine is a story of faith, forgiveness, and most of all, the restoration of hope – even for the most seemingly unredeemable among us.
