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.

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!

This Was the Best Story Yet

I could not stop listening to this story until I finished it. The story held me tight, the performance of both characters (narrators) was flawless and spot on.

Beyond Excellent!

I read Debbie’s newsletter and how she went to a woman’s prison to teach a class and was inspired to write this book. In my opinion, this is absolutely one of her best boo
