Local author Richie Colbeth has released a new book, “The Little Red Suitcase.”

The book tells the story of a boy’s journey through heartaches and loss that paved a path for God’s light to heal and redeem him from sin and confusion, according to a release from Christian Faith Publishing.

“A wonderful kid with a loving mom, dad, brother, five sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends lost them all in the snap of the fingers and became an angry unadoptable monster overnight,” Colbeth, a retired Air Force noncommissioned officer, said in the release. “Truancy, jail, drugs, alcohol and sexual abuse followed. Death or prison was on his horizon until a godly woman intervened, and Jesus adopted him.” A synopsis can be viewed on YouTube.

Consumers can purchase “The Little Red Suitcase” at traditional brick-and-mortar bookstores or online at amazon.com, Apple iTunes store or Barnes and Noble. For more information, contact the Christian Faith Publishing media department at 866-554-0919.
