Evans’ latest stands on its own, yet is nicely connected to the two previous stories. This is a heartwarming, as well as heart wrenching, romance. Many readers will be able to empathize with the heroine’s struggle with her feelings of unimportance to God. Her final acceptance of the hero’s love as well as God’s comfort is remarkable.
Jeremy Edwards often helps his brother, Collin, with his small son while his wife is out of town. When he meets daycare owner Monica Kittelski, he feels an immediate connection. Monica is also drawn to Jeremy, and, against her better judgment, becomes emotionally involved with him. She soon finds herself falling in love with Jeremy and he with her, but Monica has a secret that not only has her distancing herself from God, but causes her to make a poor first impression on Jeremy’s mother.
