Bethany Moores childhood home has always been a stabilizing factor in her life. Emotions in shambles, she returns to her small town only to find the house sold to a handsome new owner.

Helping others is a way of life for Rev. David Hadaway, but he finds Bethany particularly compelling. With patience and a little compassion, he shows her that life goes on.

Because this is a character-driven novel, weak points in David and Bethanys relationship tend to slow the story down. Those looking for a substantial external plot might find it difficult to get involved, but fans of sweet, small-town romances will enjoy this quick, easy read. (Aug., 185 pp., $19.95)
