Alexandra Lexington comes to Laurel Glen in hiding from an abusive husband and takes shelter with Elizabeth, a woman raped by her brother years ago. The two form an unlikely friendship and, as Alexandra rebuilds her life, she runs across the Mark, the handsome son of even handsomer ex-Navy SEAL Adam, who is also trying to rebuild his life with his newly found son.

The past rears its ugly head a few times, and it's to the author's credit that she makes the characters believable. Could you befriend someone related to a man who raped you? Could you find love after being physically abused by someone? These aren't easy questions, and no pat answers or platitudes are given.

However, one thing did bother me. At one point, Adam is described as logical and methodical, but faith as illogical. Biblical faith is most certainly not illogical; it is based on reasoning and evidence. It's not simply a matter of believing, as some might think.

All in all, a good day's read.

Not only could she help this boy find peace, but also she could confront his father - a man with whom she shared a poignant history.

Determined to be a good dad, Adam retired from the navy to rebuild his life with his son. But colliding with Alexandra Lexington was a surprise. He had carried a grudge against her family , but watching her overcome tremendous obstacles, he couldn't help admiring her...and then falling for her. Had God given Adam a second chance?
