The lost coin.

The lost sheep.

The prodigal son.

Jesus used these stories to tell of the intense love of the Father and His love and care for His children. No matter how we fail, no matter how far we may wander, the invitation to return to the Father is always there.

Synopsis:

For these two wounded hearts, it will take a great leap of faith to overcome past hurts and give love a chance to grow.

False accusations from the past haunt Rachel Clark, the new director of the Northcoast Christian Youth Theater. Seeking to make a fresh start in Fairhaven, Washington, she rents space for her group from an artists’ cooperative led by handsome frame shop owner, Cameron McKenna. To keep his financially strapped co-op afloat, Cam reluctantly agrees to include Rachel’s drama program, but he’s not sure he can trust the attractive director or tolerate all those kids in his building.

Cam is a widower with painful secrets of his own, and when he must temporarily care for his fourteen-year-old niece, he needs Rachel’s practical help and advice. Their friendship deepens into romance, but then past secrets come to light, Cam must decide if he will risk his heart and his future to help Rachel rebuild her reputation. Will wounds from the past destroy their fragile relationship, or can their renewed faith—in the Lord and each other—help them build a bright new future together?

I would like to thank Carrie Turansky for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

Goodreads Amazon Barnes and Noble Book Depository



Cam is a hero who is hard to not admire. Despite the fact that he doesn’t want Rachel’s theater group to rent space from the co-op, once the decision is made, he can’t stop himself from helping and protecting her. I loved his care and concern for her and for his teen-aged niece.

Rachel is both full of faith and insecure. She had been badly hurt by the accusations that drove her from Seattle. Now, in her new place, she is very hopeful she will be able to put her past behind her. Yet when it appears that her stalker may have followed her, she is afraid to tell Cam lest he reject her.

This is a lovely Prodigal Son themed story. Though that parable is clearly used to help turn the prodigal back to the Father, it is neither trite nor predictable. I cared for the characters and the heartaches they faced. The answer to the mystery and the outcome of the story were a complete surprise.

If you are looking for a shorter book full of hope and faith that will remind you of God’s love through trials, this may be just the book for you.
