The amazing true story of Gaile Owens' release from death row shows how God opened a door for a mother and son to both be set free – one from a prison of unforgiveness, the other from a literal prison cell.

The author describes his experiences as a twelve-year-old boy discovering that his mother had arranged for the murder of his abusive father and how his Christian faith led him to forgive his mother and develop a relationship with her after her release from prison.

“Gaile Owens is my mother. I am her son. Please do not take this from me. There is no justice in taking her life. There is no justice in denying the healing power of forgiveness.”

Stephen Owens was 12 years old in 1985 when he discovered his father at home badly beaten and near death. Evidence proved Stephen’s mom, Gaile, had hired a hit man to carry out the murder, and she was sent to death row. Stephen and Gaile did not see each other for decades, but through an amazing series of life transformations and revelations about the tragic event, God opened a door for both of them to be set free -- one from a prison of unforgiveness, the other from a literal prison cell.

While the events surrounding Gaile Owens’ release made national headlines and have stirred widespread fascination, Set Free far exceeds the experience and expectations of a modern true crime story, proving to be much more about God as the loving author of true forgiveness.
