Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Karen Kingsbury has been hailed as the "queen of Christian fiction" by Time magazine. She delivers an inspiring and emotionally riveting drama about one man's struggle with his beliefs, a woman's enduring faith in God, and the power of prayer.

Jordan Riley hasn't believed in God since before the traumatic events that marred his childhood, but when he returns to his hometown years later, he finds himself struggling between his current doubts and the comfort of his former religion.

Difficult to follow along at first but keep listening!! It gets better!!

It was difficult to follow along with the story at first- probably because most of Karen’s audio books are narrated by female readers, and this one is an older male reader. Not that I am biased, it just threw me off for the first chapter or two. But I am thankfulthat I kept listening, it turned out to be a REALLY good read. Different from many of her other stories because it envolved so much law and history but a wonderful story just the same of faith, family, and God’s unchanging love for us.

Story with a twist

I loved the Christian view point, the love, but was disappointed for the first time in the Why of the story. As Christians the family in the book should have helped the mother make plans for the children long before her death. Of course accidents are hard to plan for so in the beginning of the story I was fine, but I found myself disappointed in everyone who loved this family when I found out she had a long term illness and was being guided by a Christian family. Karen usually handles these issues better.
