Brought together by unexpected circumstances, Derek and Brooklyn must both confront challenges to their dreams and expectations.

And if they can do it, they just might discover that God has something better in mind than either of them ever imagined.

The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination. When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew.

And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have wronged them, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.
