Successful businessman Harry Tucker suffers a stroke and wakes up in a rehabilitation center after a long coma. Unable to move or talk and working hard just to regain his own sense of self, Harry soon realizes that the stroke he suffered, coupled with the measures taken by his uncompassionate son, have led him to lose everything-not only all material possessions but also his personal identification and access to benefits. Despair and defeat overtake him, but not for long. Harry does not forget about God because God has not forgotten about him. Determined to still lead a meaningful life, Harry begins a long, arduous journey of recovery. Helping and motivating him is a physical therapist with whom he develops a deep, lasting friendship. In the process Harry rediscovers the love of God and the joys of a Christ-centered life, a life of giving, even to those who may not seem deserving of forgiveness. Escape From Bondage gives voice to the countless stroke victims who may have been forgotten and abandoned by the rest of society and, sadly, even their families in their time of need. The tale serves as a revelation of what goes on inside an immobile, unresponsive stroke victim’s mind-the fears, the loneliness, the frustration, the agony, the desires. More broadly, the story evokes the compassion we are called to have-but often neglect-for those whose lives are confined to hospitals, nursing homes, or their own homes, those who are yearning to reach out for someone to love and encourage them.
