Publisher's Summary

Sometimes hope for the future is found in the ashes of yesterday. Shane Galanter is a man ready to put down roots after years of searching. But is he making the right choice? Or is there a woman somewhere who even now remembers, as does he, those long-ago days, and a love that hasn't faded with time?
Lauren Gibbs, a successful international war correspondent, gave up on happily-ever-after years ago when it was ripped away from her. Since then, she's never looked back. So how come she can't put to rest the one question that haunts her: Why is life so empty?
Emily Anderson, a college freshman raised by her grandparents, is about to take her first internship as a journalist. But before she can move ahead, she discovers a love story whose tragic ending came with her birth. As a result, she is drawn to look back and search out the mother she's never met.
A young woman seeking answers to her heart's deep questions. A man and woman separated by lies and long years, yet who have never forgotten each other. With hallmark tenderness and power, Karen Kingsbury weaves a tapestry of lives, losses, love, and faith, and the miracle of resurrection.

Beautifully crafted

A story that will make you cry and really think. I will save this for anyone I know with a teenagers in the home, or a teen themselves. Great thoughts on war and peace, friendship and true love.

As usual, I'm glad I read (ear-read) it.

Enjoyed the journey. A good illustration of how we have something so good I front of us but keep letting our own understanding muddy the waters. I find myself growing frustrated with the decisions of characters and then I realize a I'm doing something similar just a different topic.
I've grown fond kid other narrators so I've become biased.
