A novel series about healing and learning to trust God when life unravels. Sassy and independent, confident and secure; growing up in the family business with her four brothers has taught Rae to be fearless, tough-minded, and not so easily intimidated-assets in their male-dominated profession. When her mother, both nurturer and friend-and the only oasis in this sea of testosterone, is suddenly killed, Rae's life is up-ended, leaving her wounded, confused and resentful toward God. But when a prank leaves her stranded far from home and the shelter of her dad and brothers, she learns she cannot run from Him for very long.Centered around church and family, Heath's life was ideal-or so he thought. Suddenly the rug was pulled out from under him when his wife wanted out. Left alone to care for his eight-month-old son, his heart and his life in pieces; moving back in with his mom and the group of elderly boarders who share her house, seemed the practical thing to do. But is he really just hiding-out?'For better or for worse'Andrea had made vows to God-who knew that 'worse' would come so early in their marriage and stay so long? When, after twenty-five years, Andrea is widowed, she purposes in her heart that she will eschew marriage and devote herself only to God-but is that His will for her? Our deepest hurts and disappointments: who can heal them? We promise ourselves we will never again allow ourselves to be hurt again hold back part-or all-of our heart from God. But in His mercy, God wants to heal our hurts and draw us close to Himself as He reveals to us His heart of love.
