“Quitter”: a gripping story of redemption and renewal. “Quitter” is the creation of published author Kevin Hicks, a history and English teacher as well as director of plays and musicals at Metamora Township High School in Central Illinois. In his free time, he enjoys kayaking and tirelessly rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Kevin Hicks’ new book presents Sawyer Kent, a man living in despair at the failure of his once-promising life.

Standing on an icy bridge above a frozen river, he must decide if he will quit once and for all. But this time, quitting just might save his life.

Sawyer Kent knew he could never go back home. Lies, broken promises, and the ruin of Sarah had settled that. Some matters were impossible to fix. Or, for a man like Sawyer, too troublesome. But after squandering a promising Broadway career, he receives a plea that he cannot ignore. Sawyer’s great mentor and high school director, Ed Bertollini, lay dying. The old man’s hospital-bed request is for Sawyer to return home and complete Bertollini’s final show.

With no future, little dignity, and the loathsome prospect of disappointing the only man who genuinely loved him, Sawyer Kent finds himself traveling back to a world of familiar faces, old grudges, and a cast of talented young teens counting on him to sort it all out. With the help of a Christian friend, Sawyer begins to navigate the strange battlefield of his new life. Unknown to him, however, is an old secret that has been kept hidden from him for years. This surprising truth may threaten to crush his new life and the fragile faith that has begun to take root in his heart.
