Lead Me Not into Temptation, I Can Find it On My Own is the story of Michael Surreal, a troubled thirty-three-year-old husband and father who, up until the day he dies and is condemned to hell, aspires to become the world’s greatest poet. While in hell, Michael becomes disgruntled with what he sees as flaws in the way it’s decided who goes to heaven and who goes to hell.
Having grown weary of listening to his complaints, the devil allows Michael to return to earth and pursue a life of righteousness. Michael’s prayer is that the life he has now sworn to abide and adhere to will ensure him another chance to enter into God’s kingdom. The devil’s one and only stipulation is that he doesn’t break any of the Ten Commandments or violate any of the seven deadly sins.
As fate would have it, the nineteen-year-old girl Michael once vowed to never see again, walks back into his life not long after his return. What unfolds next not even God Himself would foresee, even though both Michael and Autumn knew He watched their every fault with bated breath.
