Length: 361 pages


Hana is a single mom who desperately loves her young son, Isaac, and plans to protect him from his abusive father. Isaac has special needs and is often misunderstood by those who don’t know him, even within the church. But the pastor of her new church, Matt Schofield, is another matter completely. From the moment he meets Isaac and the boy grabs Matt’s bushy beard, they have a special bond. Matt’s life has been very predictable up until this point, but Hana and Isaac change all that.

This is a story of compassion that will touch the reader’s heart. The writing is eloquent with characters that become important to you as you become part of their lives. Highly recommended.
