The book is the first in a series of four books about a group of neighbors living together, learning about God's grace, and being there for each other as life's challenges come to their families. The neighbors are all very diverse: Sylvia, the mother who is an empty nester but a mother to the other three neighbors; Cathy, a single mother who works as a vet and has struggled with her three children; Tory, a former beauty queen who works to deal with her perfectionism while working with her husband to raise their two children, and Brenda, a true believer homeschools her four children and is married to a man holding a grudge against God.
In this book the main struggle is for Brenda's family. Her son, Joseph, needs a heart transplant. The neighbors rally around the family, which receives a miracle from God. A heart comes just as Joseph is about to take his last breath.
Wonderful book. Hard to wait to start the next one.
