Publisher's Summary

Anna's life changes forever on one horrific night when she is assaulted and left for dead.

Anna Marquette has everything to live for. Her daughters are in college and, with the support of Paul, her loving husband, she is pursuing her dream of a career in counseling. Then one night, while on a trip to Orlando, the unimaginable happens. She takes a shortcut to an evening out with Paul and is brutally assaulted.

When Anna suspects the attack has left her pregnant, her faith is put to the test. As Anna and her family confront the heart-wrenching decisions that lie ahead, Anna gradually comes to realize that God has a plan for her and that she must trust Him. But will her family accept the choice she makes? Will her husband's love for her prevail? And will her marriage survive this ultimate test?

This novel was originally titled In the Still of Night. It has been expanded and updated from the original edition.

Cotton candy

While the subject matter was difficult and relevant to what, sadly, is faced too many times in our society...the sing-song, overly sweet depiction of how this family handled was just too much! Additionally, I found myself scrabbling to find what year the book was released, clearly the setting was current as the reference to cell phone and internet confirmed but 2016!! We, thankfully, have come a long way from the world view that a family is all one race, all biological and being adopted is a well guarded secret; the time wasted on such things caught me feeling irritated....yes, in an earlier time in history, but 2016. There was some redemption in the conclusion and ended far more believable. I have been a big fan of other DR stories but this one left my teeth hurting & my head irritated with the too simple, too sweet, too unbelievable characters (visual of Georgette from the MTM show). I am sorry to be so harsh with my review but greatly disappointed this time. **On a side note, the subject matter was a great point of conversation with my husband & young adult daughter.

Excellent Story

Can't say enough about this writer. Storyline was well written. characters were real. circumstances were unimaginable but the portray of faith, struggle, real feelings fallout opened up God's sovereign hand in our lives. life isn't easy. Trials are real. Looking forward to more by this author and narrator.

Difficult situation compassionately told

Any additional comments?

The author handled a difficult story line with compassion and delicacy. Not a light read and yet full of hope.

Extremely predictable

If you enjoy an exciting book you will be disappointed. It starts off with a bang and goes downhill. Only one significant event happens in the book. Not a bad read just not exciting.
