Orphaned and innocent, Samantha Evans was easy prey for con man Louis Cantrell. He left her broke and pregnant, but she persevered. Four years later, surrounded by a loving family, Samantha's life seems to be headed in the right direction as she cares for her young daughter, pursues her dream of becoming a child welfare worker, and dreams of marrying Patrick Wheeler, the young law student she ran over in the Sonic parking lot. The only thing standing in the way of those plans is Patrick's refusal to accept Christ in his life, but they're working on that. At least they were until Louis Cantrell walked back into her life.
A God that made the universe, absolutely. A God that hears and answers prayers, not so much. Patrick Wheeler loves Samantha - and her little girl - but he's done with Christ. Two Christian fathers dead, a Christian mother who suffered through those heartbreaks despite her faith. And as faithful as Samantha is, God is allowing Louis to mess with her life a second time. Driven by love and desperation, Patrick proposes marriage, and Samantha refuses. How can she choose a con man over him? Louis is welcome to her.
A tragedy followed by a surprising confrontation with God drives Patrick back to Samantha's side. Can he reconcile with God before Samantha and Bobbie are lost to him forever?

I am an avid Sharon Srock fan and her writing continues to amaze me! Samantha is the 4th book in the series and I love all of them. Sharon Srock weaves her stories with love, faith, and the Christian spirit. I grow closer to God by reading her stories. There's always something that pulls at my heart at the time in my life when I need it most. Having Christ is our lives doesn't always mean that Christians have no problems, and Sharon shows us what trying to live a Christian life can be like. This is such a beautiful, heartwarming story. Laura Jennings does a wonderful job narrating this audio book.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
Thanks you for the beautiful story, and I can't even imagine the pain Sam must have felt, which wasn't even a millionth of what the Father and Spirit felt over Jesus. The narrator-ship was excellent also.
this author has become a favorite of mine. without giving too much away, the book deals with a kidnapper without a conscious (sp), taking his daughter, his partner was a criminal helps with the kidnapping. the one man repents and takes the child back to the mother while the other man does not. both are taken into custody. there is true salvation to christ for two of the people in the story. and a sweet romance the end. and yahoooo, no illicit sex. I am anxious to "read" the next book she writes, and hopefully it will be soon!
