#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Debbie Macomber returns with a powerful standalone novel about a woman forced to start her life anew, embarking on the most courageous journey of all--to a place where she learns what love and trust really mean.

Shay Benson adored her younger brother, Caden, and that got her into trouble. When he owed money, Shay realized she would do anything to help him avoid the men who were threatening him, and she crossed lines she never should have crossed. Now, determined to start fresh, she finds herself in search of a place to stay and wanders into a church to escape from the cold.

Pastor Drew Douglas adored his wife. But when he lost her, it was all he could do to focus on his two beautiful kids, and his flock came in a distant third. Now, as he too is thinking about a fresh start, he walks through his sanctuary and finds Shay sitting in a pew.

The pair strike up a friendship--Drew helps Shay get back on her feet, and she reignites his sense of purpose--that, over time, turns into something deeper, something soulful, spiritual, and possibly romantic. Even Drew's two children are taken with this woman who has brought light back into their lives. Perhaps most important, Shay learns to trust again as she, in turn, proves herself trustworthy to her adopted community.

But Caden's return to town and a disastrous secret threaten to undo the life Shay has tried so hard to rebuild. It will take the utmost courage and faith if she and Drew hope to find healing and open their hearts to a brighter future.

Another good one by Debbie!

While this book was readable and I didn't put it down, I did jump ahead in the pages after a while because it was clear where it was going and I noticed that 4 more people are waiting for it. As an avid reader of Debbie MaComber's titles and an owner of most of them, I was disappointed this book wasn't as good as many of her other titles. It was pretty vanilla and just needed more spice.
I enjoy all of her "Christian" titles too. And yes, I do believe this could actually happen because...with God all things are possible. That being said, if you want a quick read and to be assured it is NOT filled with smutty words (the sign of a small vocabulary and an even smaller mind) then this book will serve you well. I applaud the library for actually labeling some of the books with the Cross/Christian reading label! I have accidentally checked out some books that were full of words I would not want to hear coming out of a four year olds mouth. And thus, they were immediately returned. Happy reading!

As unbelievable as many parts of the story were it is a good, easy read.

Gag me. I love Debbie Macomber, but her Christian fiction is just too much.

This book is so lacking in credibility that my head wants to explode. Yes, I get the hope for redemption. But, in the real world, this doesn't happen. Not even remotely.
