Worley finds gold in Alaska, a vein worth millions and one that funds a new life in a new community. Once he relocates his family to Alaska, he becomes involved in many high-profile adventures involving a drug cartel, illegal hunting, and a diamond hunt. He also engages with the needs of people suffering in his newfound home state by providing resources and support to help with the drug epidemic. Additionally, he connects on a more personal and individual level by helping people turn their lives around. Overall, he uses his life to impact others in positive ways and never turns away from a challenge or difficulty.

With his wise assessments of situations and strong ability to defend himself and his family, Worley is an everyman hero who is just trying to do the right thing. As the years go by, he feels compelled to do God’s work as he becomes more involved in the community and connects with criminals he hopes to transform. This is a heartfelt thriller that explores the impact of one man who doesn’t seek the limelight yet finds himself making a difference through his actions and his commitment. In Worley, Waterhouse has not only created an engaging protagonist but also an inspiring one.
