Kingsbury's latest book takes a familiar plot device -- a setting in the fascinating world of the NFL -- and gives it a fresh twist. Megan and Aaron's relationship develops at a realistic pace and is filled with a series of believable twists. The novel's spiritual content provides encouragement and will help to uplift the reader's soul.
Foster parent Megan Gunn has been raising 8-year-old Cory for two years. She wants to adopt him but can't because Cory insists that Aaron Hill, the star quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, is his biological father. Megan sets out to prove that the arrogant Aaron is not Cory's father.
When Aaron gets involved with a program for foster children, it's because he hopes to improve his tarnished reputation. He doesn't bargain on the connection he feels with the beautiful Megan and the confusion that Cory's claim stirs up in him. (ZONDERVAN, Nov., 304 pp., $21.99)
