Fifteen years ago, Adam Thorne participated in a Halloween prank that resulted in a man's death. Now, he's a successful cardiologist in Baltimore who is rapidly falling in love with the dead man's daughter, Kasey Delaney, who owns her own floral shop. Can she forgive and forget and find love with Adam?
There are some excellent points made on forgiveness. Could God forgive Adam and the others who pulled the prank? Remember that God forgave David his sins of adultery and murder involving Bathsheba and her husband, Uriah; he also forgave Paul (formerly Saul), who was an accessory to the stoning of Stephen.
My only complaint is that they meet and barely weeks later, they're courting. I had this same compliant with Lough's other book "Suddenly Home". Most people do not fall in love that quickly; that's infatuation.
Several years before one Halloween night five young men stuffed a dummy and put it on the railway tracks to see how far the train would carry it. A man dies as a result. Yearts later one of these young men comes across the daughter of the man who died. Soon he's falling in love, but the secret stands between them. More later.
As a boy, Adam Thorne participated in a prank that went horribly wrong. Having no adult in his life to teach him that, with a changed heart, no sin is unforgivable, he turned his guilt into a shield....
...until Kasey Delaney bounded into his world, bubbling with life and overflowing with enthusiasm for God's love.
Months into their whirlwind courship, Adam still hadn't revealed his shameful secret. But could he bear the loneliness if Kasey couldn't set aside her pain and anger and see him for the man he had become, rather than the boy he had been? Or would God, in His infinite wisdom, give Adam the strength to unburden his heart and rejoice in the healing power of love?
