New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin’s breathtaking novel of love and redemption.

Charlie Finn had to grow up fast, living alone by age sixteen. Highly intelligent, he earned a life-changing scholarship to Harvard, where he learned how to survive and thrive on the outskirts of privileged society. That skill served him well in the cutthroat business world, as it does in more lucrative but dangerous ventures he now operates off the coast of Miami. Charlie tries to separate relationships from work. But when his choices produce devastating consequences, he sets out to right wrongs, traveling to Central America where he will meet those who have paid for his actions, including a woman and her young daughter. Will their fated encounter present Charlie with a way to seek the redemption he thought was impossible — and free his heart to love one woman as he never knew he could?


  • "A beautiful story of love, redemption, and football. A winning combination."
    Library Journal on A Life Intercepted
  • "Avid football fans will be rewarded....Equal parts crime thriller/mystery and old-fashioned love story."
    Bookpage on A Life Intercepted
  • "Martin is the new king of the romantic novel. . ..A Life Intercepted is a book that will swallow you up and keep you spellbound."
    Jackie K Cooper, Book Critic, The Huffington Post, on A Life Intercepted
  • "A touching tale of love, loss, and redemption."
    Booklist on A Life Intercepted
  • "Could easily be ripped from today's headlines. A moving story of lost dreams, unending love, truth seeking and in the end, inspiring redemption. This one is not to be missed!"
    Michael Morris, author of Man in the Blue Moon and A Place Called Wiregrass on A Life Intercepted
  • "Martin's story charges headlong into the sentimental territory-and best-seller terrain-of The Notebook, which doubtless will mean major studio screen treatment."
    Kirkus (starred review) on Unwritten
  • "Every word Martin writes seems to be purposefully chosen and adds to the beautiful picture he paints with prose. The characters are so real they radiate from the page. Readers will be moved, touched and changed."
    RT Book Reviews, ****1/2, on Unwritten
  • "A spellbinding novel...Charles Martin took the threads of his storyline and wrapped them around my heart. His unforgettable characters captivate as they confront their hidden pasts and build upon their futures with faith, friendship, and grace."
    Elin Hilderbrand, author of Beautiful Dayon Unwritten
  • "Charles Martin's latest novel brings to mind the storytelling traditions of Nicholas Sparks and John Grisham. Unwritten is a novel for the heart but it's also one of adventure....Unwritten is a page turner and has all the ingredients to become a box office smash."
    Michael Morris, author of Man in the Blue Moon on Unwritten
  • "I found Unwritten one of those strangely beautiful, exotically original novels whose substance dawns slowly to the reader's consciousness like a glorious sunrise. Do not start this book unless you have time to savor, reflect, and renew. Do, if you have space to fit a memorable reading experience into your life."
    Leila Meacham, author of Tumbleweedson Unwritten
