This Christian fiction book is a quick read and yet has some depth to it. It's the third of the "Place Called Home" series and I think the best. It gives insight into feelings when one loses a spouse and shows two opposite ways of handling it.

Paul Cameron was a Pastor who got angry at God for letting his spouse die so left the ministry. On the other hand, Abby, a pastor's wife, accepted her spouse's death as God's will and relied on Him for strength and comfort. Although predictably, Paul and Abby fall in love with each other; however, the journey of how they arrive there was very interesting and entertaining. I also liked how Lori Wick included humor when Abby was nursing Paul back to health.

It is well written and I believe anyone who has prayed for healing for someone and they died anyway can relate to the feelings expressed in this book through Paul and Abby.
