Though his heart is healing, Noah's life is falling apart.
A tragic accident has taken the only woman Noah Myers thought he could ever love. But despite the pain of loss, he soon finds himself falling in love with the woman who killed her.
His world is shattered, his heart torn apart, and single fatherhood looms like an impending storm on the horizon. Noah hasn't begun to cope with his own grief. Then she shows up, begging for forgiveness. Lindsey Preston, the woman who took his wife, and altered his life forever. He soon finds they have an unexpected emotional connection. One that ultimately threatens to destroy his life within the tight knit community he loves.
Noah struggles with his loss, with the expectations of others, and with his own heart, as he does the unthinkable, and falls in love with Lindsey, a woman struggling, herself. Lindsey has a hidden past, filled with fear and violence, and a drug-smuggling ex-husband she's trying to outrun. The last thing she wants is to hurt Noah further, but her love places his very existence in jeopardy. The church congregation whose children he leads finds him unfit, and his in-laws threaten to take his own daughters.
Lindsey, trying to find peace and safety in a new place, never imagined the emotional storm she finds herself in after falling in love with Noah. Between guilt over costing him his wife, and the fear she may cost him everything else, she decides her only option is to walk away to spare him. Little does she know, she could very well cost him his life in the process. With her past closing in, and Noah's life on the line, they must rely on the only things they have left…their faith, their courage, and their love for each other.
