Format: Print Book

Length: 343 Pages

OVERVIEW

When Leona has a stroke, her granddaughter Kate moves in with her– temporarily; but things become complicated after new-Christian Nick, a local, saves Kate’s life. Kate has a career back in Los Angeles she doesn’t intend to leave, and Nick has sworn off dating for a year, but neither can deny the chemistry between them. It includes realistic problems, such as Kate’s struggle to believe in and trust God, and Nick’s past mistakes, including a one-night-stand resulting in an abortion. The two protagonists also have to contend with Leona’s health, a struggling newspaper, and the endangered condor species Kate’s grandfather worked to save. However, it’s difficult to keep track of the various aspects included in this book, which makes some details seem forced and slows the plot at times.
