November 8, 2011, felt like an ordinary day to Julia Cavatelli as she left work. It turned out anything but ordinary, however. An unexpected event and her encounter with I. M. Travis (Travis) started a series of changes no one could have predicted, and perhaps few would have believed. Struggles on her enlightening journey challenged Julia, robbed her happiness, and would have left her a fraction of her former self if not for the intersection of unexpected variables. The person responsible for Julia's changes fought to find peace after his ill-fated actions. He viewed his subsequent personal tragedies the result of how he wronged Julia and others. Although he once deemed his image tarnished and his life a mess, he persevered thanks to an unexpected source of strength. Julia's husband, a pragmatic man with a strong sense of fairness, intended to address both Julia and her offender. He sought to lift Julia from a life of self-pity and daily doldrums to a sense of worth and potential, and to get even with the man who caused her-no, his and Julia's problems and unhappiness. After months of scheming and discovery, and after a chance encounter of his own, Gino Cavatelli plays an integral role in Travis's, not his, plan. The mysterious Travis, a servant of people in need worldwide, allowed time to pass and learning to occur before interceding. Eventually, he used seemingly unrelated events to reveal the truth about grace and forgiveness. Based in part on a real-life event, and filled with a lifetime of learning, I. M. Travis will inspire you to see the world differently and to seek the best in everyone. Travis, first introduced in A Gun and Cherries in the Bucket of Blood, would have it no other way.
