Publisher's Summary

Rocking on front porches, drinking sweet iced tea out of heirloom glasses while indulging in a little innocent gossip is a way of life in the small southern town of Park Place, South Carolina. Reverend Rock Clark is the middle-aged preacher of the Presbyterian Church in town and has made peace with the fact that he is "unlucky in love" and will always be a bachelor. He's become quite comfortably settled in his life, but suddenly a serious car accident involving a mysterious young woman and her daughter throws him into the role of detective. Trying to track down the father of the five-year-old child while her mother is in a coma, he enlists the help of his neighbor, Liz, an attractive widow. While searching for the child's relatives, Rock's comfortable lifestyle becomes quite uncomfortable when he stumbles into a tangled web of deceit and a case of misguided intentions.    

When things finally settle down, Liz retreats to her mountain cabin when she realizes that her feelings for Rock have grown past the friendship stage. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and her absence has left him confused and baffled at how much he misses her. Will he once again let love slip through his fingers?

Very enjoyable

I felt I was sitting on the front porch right along with Rock and Liz. Descriptions were wonderful, Charters were very believable. The story and scripture were well matched. This is a great book to recommend to someone who is going through a tough time or it is just a great listen!

Predictable but lovely!

If you love Hallmark movies, you will love this book. Yes, it's predictable - you can see the ending from beginning - but there are a few surprises that caught me off guard. It made me feel good, I smiled at the tenderness of the love story. It also encouraged me to begin each day on my knees in prayer. The performance was just so-so. I do recommend this book.
