Publisher's Summary

Beloved and best-selling author Debbie Macomber returns with a powerful stand-alone novel about a woman forced to start her life anew, embarking on the most courageous journey of all - to a place where she learns what love and trust really mean.

Shay Benson adored her younger brother, Caden, and that got her into trouble. When he owed money, Shay realized she would do anything to help him avoid the men who were threatening him, and she crossed lines she never should have crossed. Now, determined to start fresh, she finds herself in search of a place to stay and wanders into a church to escape from the cold.

Pastor Drew Douglas adored his wife. But when he lost her, it was all he could do to focus on his two beautiful kids, and his flock came in a distant third. Now, as he, too, is thinking about a fresh start, he walks through his sanctuary and finds Shay sitting in a pew.

The pair strike up a friendship - Drew helps Shay get back on her feet, and she reignites his sense of purpose - that over time turns into something deeper, something soulful, spiritual, and possibly romantic. Even Drew's two children are taken with this woman who has brought light back into their lives. Perhaps most important, Shay learns to trust again as she, in turn, proves herself trustworthy to her adopted community.

But Caden's return to town and a disastrous secret threaten to undo the life Shay has tried so hard to rebuild. It will take the utmost courage and faith if she and Drew hope to find healing and open their hearts to a brighter future.

One of her best. Excellent

Now this is Debbie Macomber at her finest! A wonderfully told story of faith, second chances, love and loyalty. I’ve read maybe 50% of her books and this is one is at the top of the list with the Blossom Street series. 😃

Book 4? I'm confused.

Thought this would somehow connect to 1st 3. It didnt. Predictable ending. Cute story though

Joyfull

Very glad I chose this wonderful, clean and inspirational book. I've read other books by Debbie Macomber and it was a predictable ending as I was able to figure out "who did it" but what a refreshing story. As a Christian I plan on reading more books like this one. Thank you Debbie, I was filled with joy reading this book, I did not want it to end!

GOOD STORY...NARRATION JUST OK!

I'm a religious person but this was just a little over the top for me. The story was good but didn't get REALLY good until the last hour when somewhat of a mystery came into play. As for narration, it was hard to know who was speaking if you weren't paying close attention. It wasn't terrible but I've heard better. Regardless, it still deserves a 4-star across the board.

The story is wonderful …

…the female narrator not so much. This would be a better story if reading the book and not listening to it. The narrator was very clipped—like the guy on dragnet. I almost stopped listening a couple of times but decided to muddle through it because I like Macomber’s books. I’m glad I stuck with it, but I’ll avoid books with this particular narrator.

Love Thy Neighbor

This book is a perfect example of loving others, not placing judgement, giving 2nd chances and many more characteristics of Jesus.

Hopeful, inspiring and God-loving

I’ve had this book on my shelf for years, knowing any book by Debbie Macomber is worth reading. So glad I finally decided to read it because it was the inspiration I’ve been waiting for. Any Dream Will Do, is an amazing drama told from the point of view of two characters who go through MANY ups and downs, and as the story unfolds you can’t help but to hope for the best for them. Yes, it’s a romance, but I felt this book dug deeper and portrayed a true reality of what it takes for second chances. I loved the part that Macomber demonstrated the many types of second chances one gives and takes, and it just filled me with inspiration. I also appreciated this story was a God-loving one.
