About the Book:
Love can heal even the deepest scars …
After seven years with no clue as to the whereabouts of Ann Ballard’s missing husband, nearly everyone presumes him dead. Now forty-something, Ann is ready for her stagnant life to flow again. Then one day, a dark-haired younger man from her past shows up on her doorstep offering a river of hope in place of tears.
Former neighbor Mark Roth has secretly loved Ann for years. A respected attorney, he’s returned home to help Ann face down disapproving family members and the legal maneuvering of her likely deceased husband’s family— while quietly winning her heart.
When the hidden truth of Ann’s situation turns their lives on end and another tragedy strikes, the two must come to terms with family, faith and the depths to which true love can run.

1/27/10Sheesh woman, you are like a female Nicholas Sparks, but I LOVED IT!!!
Lisa Lickel is an author to watch. Never before have I read a story like this; a beautiful love story that moved me emotionally because of the message. It has a similar tone to Nicholas Sparks and there is emotion packed into every scene. The faith element is raw, honest, and bold. The writing is gripping and pulls you right in. The romance is absolutely breathtaking and powerfully done. I loved this story so much it's making my best fiction for 2010 list. I could not put this wonderful novel down. It really makes you think hard about your life and the people you love. That, in my opinion, is what makes a novel like this one so great. Michelle Sutton
