A victim of rape, 16-year-old Scottlyn Rich is disowned by her family when she refuses to abort the child she carries. Determined to raise her baby, she has no idea how to handle the obstacles ahead; she knows only that giving her daughter, Mercie, a chance to live is the most important thing she'll ever do.
Widowed schoolteacher Diana Kensington lost everything she held dear the day her husband's plane fell out of the sky. Four hundred and thirty nine days later, she still has no answer to her daily prayer: "What now, God?"
Can trust be built between these two lost women? Can they work together to fill the void in each other's lives, for Mercie's sake?
