Riddled with doubt and lingering regrets, will Suzanne and Paul find strength in God to explore a second chance at love? 

 
It wasn’t easy to move back to the Old Order Mennonite community from which quiet, responsible Suzanne Zimmerman was shamefully sent away as a pregnant teen. Returning twenty years later to take care of her mother, Suzanne and Alexa—the daughter she raised as her own—have spent months rebuilding relationships with her family.
 
Now with the upcoming wedding of their biological daughter,  Suzanne and Paul find themselves drawn to one another once again—but with new challenges to face. They have been single parents with painful pasts. Can Paul and Suzanne find the strength to rebuild the loving relationship that was torn apart by their teen pregnancy so long ago?
 
Suzanne must also let go of Alexa as she heads back to Indianapolis to visit friends--and as her chance to find her birth parents. Leaving the bed-and-breakfast in Suzanne’s apprehensive hands, Alexa embarks on a journey that will certainly change her life completely. Can mother and daughter trust God to restore all things in His timing?

A captivating read, leaving you wanting more.” —Lauraine Snelling, author of To Everything a Season in the Song of Blessing series, Wake the Dawn, and Heaven Sent Rain “With a compelling style, Kim Vogel Sawyer weaves a story of love, compassion, forgiveness, and redemption and a family determined to discover and accept the truth.
