I received this book as a goodreads giveaway. A sweet story of forgiveness, redemption, and the consequences of the choices we make. With God's loving grace a couple find themselves reunited and journey to form a new family. Reminds one to keep hope.

I normally don't do religious type novels but I actually really liked this one. In fact I thought it was down right great. Everything worked out how it was suppose to and it didn't seem fake or exaggerated at all!
