When Shay Benson leaves prison, her prospects are bleak. She sits in the back pew of a church wondering where God is and how she can move forward. In front of the church, on his knees, Pastor Drew Douglas is begging God for the clouds to lift. After the death of his wife, his two children and his congregation seem lost. Shay may be the answer to his prayers but it could be difficult with two people who have suffered so much loss. Drew introduces Shay to Hope Center, a place where she can get a fresh start. In turn, Drew reconnects with a friend who sets him on a course of healing that includes a relationship with Shay. But Shay has unfinished business with a dangerous former boyfriend and a wayward brother with his own problems. She struggles to get free of the old haunts that still threaten her happiness, and she and Drew work to build a future together.
VERDICT Macomber never disappoints, and while this book is more spiritual in nature than her other titles, the message is uplifting and inspirational. Fans of Christian fiction or crossover works with a positive message will enjoy this book. [See Prepub Alert, 2/27/17.]
