Three years after Kate Sterling’s heart was shattered by the unexpected death of her husband, she packs up what is left of her life and moves back to Harvest Bay, Ohio, with her young daughter. She soon discovers that her sleepy hometown has changed–and that she has been given a second chance at love. But is God leading her to a love linked to the past . . . or to one who will walk with her into the future?
In her debut novel, author Jen Stephens bursts on the literary scene with a warmth and charm that shines through her writing right into the reader’s heart. With down-home candor and skilled word-weaving, Stephens allows her story to unfold through believable characters, drawing readers in right from the beginning and carrying them on a pleasant journey with enough twists and turns along the way to maintain interest to the very last page. Congratulations on a great first novel, and I certainly expect to see more from this author in the future!

Stephens’s debut story about the redemption of heartache took me to a place where the important things of life were made important again. Her writing is a reflection of the story-telling characteristics of the Creator: not what the characters expected or prayed for, but what brought real love and value in the end.
