Miracles in Disguise Publisher's Summary

What do you do when the pain of your past leaves you feeling so unworthy, that any hope of a future crumbles right before your eyes?

Since Kristina Talbot can remember, she's tried to earn the love of men in her life, only to be hurt in the process. On the heels of her abusive husband's death, Kristina Talbot leaves New York and heads to New Mexico to try and get her life headed down a new road - one that doesn't include a man.

Even before she reaches her destination, Nathan McKinley sets up a roadblock to her plan. His charming and gentle personality is no match for her love-starved heart. And when Nathan shows her God in a new light, and how to place her trust in Him and not her circumstances, she begins to hope...

When Kristina's past collides with her present, and tragedy strikes close to Kristina's heart, her fears and distrust come flooding back, threatening to sweep away her newfound hope. Can Nathan help her hold on to her new relationship with God, or will she allow her dark and troubled past to pluck out the tiny bud of hope that is beginning to blossom within her heart?

    Leanne grew up under the steady trickle of the harsh and belittling words of her critical mother, in the shadow of her sisters' perfection, and under the weight of a dark secret. With her self-confidence all but eroded, and her head hanging down, she is surprised when Mike McKinley notices her. With every kind word, Mike erases a little pain from her past, and for the first time, she feels as if she is standing on firm ground. But seven years into their marriage, she realizes that her foundation is lying on shallow ground.
