Publisher's summary

Can love survive heaven's wrath?

Artist Ted Armstrong lives a solitary and eccentric life. The survivor of child abuse disguised as religion, Ted has cut himself off from the world.

Then Ted meets Anderson Taylor, and it's like being struck by lightning.

Anderson is a cardiac surgeon whose passion for his work has consumed him. He fears he'll never find a partner - until he sets eyes on Ted. It's happening fast, but both men know what they feel is right.

Confronted with an angry preacher, a scandal, and an act of God that threatens to destroy everything, their relationship will face its first true test.

An emotional, beautiful story

 I don't often read books that have religious overtones. It makes me furious enough seeing how people twist things to suit them in the name of religion in real life and that carries over for me into reading. It may be a good thing because if written well (and this story is VERY well written), I can really feel a lot of emotion. This audiobook brought out just about every emotion I have. I felt angry that some parents don't know the meaning of unconditional love, I felt grateful that the characters were able to find that unconditional love in others to replace what their parents couldn't give, I felt the rush of new love, strong, but just beginning and I felt a huge sense of family.

Ted, an artist from a fanatically religious family was so sweet. Even having to face so many things growing up alone for the most part, he was still just a very endearing character. I appreciated that for all it made him introverted, it also made him determined and even though it did cloud his thinking, it didn't overshadow it enough to stop him from trying to be the best him he could be and it didn't stop him from grabbing his slice of happy when it was in front of him. One of the things that I liked most about this character was that he could have been angst ridden, making
