Read in April, 2012

From City Life to Country Life---it is a big change for Darlene and Brad Henderson much more for their three teenage children.

It is not just adjusting to a new way of life that Darlene the central character of the story is going to face. A crisis will test her faith and married life is not such blissful as she hopes to be.

Beth Wiseman is a gifted storyteller.


I cannot put this book down after reading a few chapters. It is the kind of book good for a summer read over a cup of coffee in the morning or sipping an ice-coffee in the afternoon.

The Author has produced realistic and interesting characters such as Darlene and her husband Brad---who were trying their best to cope up with financially difficulties and bringing up three teenagers with distinct personalities and one with a hidden secret.

Then there was a twist along the way, when you get to know their nearest neighbor Layla, who has a dark secret of her own that will surprise you.

Added to the “drama” was one Dave Schroeder, handsome and successful, but dealing with being a widow and having a beautiful autistic daughter. His sadness leads him to go against his beliefs and risk something for a woman he can never have.

The storyline is not predictable and the sub-plots are indeed a page-turner that makes up for an exciting read. The characters are so believable that anyone can identify with.

It's all about redemption, forgiveness and how strong is your faith.

Having said all that, this is excellent work of Contemporary Christian Fiction.
