Metal slamming against metal makes a loud noise, and Johnny, already on edge, looks back quickly. And in an instant the unthinkable happens. Johnny's chrome-plated .45-caliber pistol fires. His ears are assaulted by the loud pop of the pistol in his hand.
Johnny Ruff, having grown up in the boroughs of Harlem, is not a bad man. He has fought for survival all of his life, often leading him into fistfights—the survival of the fittest. But Johnny's life changes when he meets the love of his life, Lexi, and soon marries her. In an attempt to do good, Johnny is framed for a crime he didn't commit, and he must pay the price—a 12-month sentence in prison. With the odds stacked against him, Johnny is released; although the odds aren't good, he promises himself he will not return, but when the unthinkable happens, an accident he never intended, Johnny fears that returning to prison is inevitable. After a surprise visit, Johnny is challenged with a task—save the lives of five people—in order to earn his forgiveness. Can Johnny fulfill his obligation, and will his heart change along the way, or will he risk losing his soul?
Walking on Clouds, by Joe Devoy, is a heartbreaking tale of fighting for forgiveness, of seeking the path of righteousness when all seems lost, that will inspire even the most hopeless to become a better person.
