Publisher's summary

Bailey struggles to find herself on Broadway and with her new cast members in New York City, while Cody coaches a small high school football team...on and off the field. But neither feels complete without the chance to share their dreams with each other.

Bailey and Cody’s desire to follow their individual dreams begins to cause confusion for the young couple. Bailey, now living in New York City, is an actress and dancer on Broadway, but soon her job is at risk. Cody continues to be a coach, mentor, and friend to a group of football players in Indiana.

Cody, whose mother's history as a drug addict has put his family in harm's way, takes matters into his own hands and cuts off all ties to the love of his life in order to protect her. Bailey, wounded from Cody's sudden disappearance, seeks solace in Brandon Paul, a famous actor who has fallen in love with her.

Can absence truly make the heart grow fonder, or will Cody turn to others to share in his happiness? And when tragedy strikes, who will be there to provide comfort in the face of loss? As Cody’s past catches up with him, he must learn to reach out for help or risk withdrawing permanently inside himself.

Both Bailey and Cody find themselves learning significant life lessons in this poignant love story. Featuring members of the popular Baxter family from best-selling author Karen Kingsbury’s beloved Redemption series, discover what’s in store for these two beloved characters.

Disappointed in a line from this book.

I was really enjoying this book. I liked it better than the first one in this series. However, when Bailey and Brandon were at the zoo there was a line about a “big girl” in the front of the line noticed him. I thought using the term big girl was rude and super unnecessary. It seemed like a worldly comment for a Christian book. If she meant tall the “tall girl” should have been used. Over all the book was good. This is my least favorite series in the Baxter family books.

I didn't think I would like this one but found Karen once again covers topics with difficult answers while also bringing us closer to characters we love. I find myself thinking about them during the day as if they are real people! crazy! LOL!
