Jamie Bryan honors the memory of her 9/11 firefighter husband by volunteering at a memorial chapel near Ground Zero. Three years after the attack, hurting people still pour into the chapel seeking comfort. Jamie gently points them to the only true answer—Jesus Christ. Surely, her worthy work and her 7-year-old daughter, Sierra, provide all the meaning her life needs.

Then her heart turns inside out with one searing look from a Los Angeles police officer who's come to visit the site for his own reasons. Could she find again the passionate love she once knew? Words penned in the margin of her dead husband's Bible call her to leave the past behind and choose life—until she learns a shocking truth about the man who tempts her toward fresh love.

Kingsbury delights and challenges once again with a story of resurrected faith, hope and love in the face of loss. The characters will live on in readers' hearts, especially little Sierra. (Jan., 352 pp., $13.99)
