a Miller's Creek novel and Christian contemporary romance
A former soldier battles for the soul of a prodigal...
After a devastating divorce, a bitter single mom and
atheist starts her own real estate company in the nostalgic and picturesque
town of Miller’s Creek, Texas. Then her young daughter’s disturbing symptoms
lead doctors to discover that her leukemia has relapsed. With her new life now
turned upside down, Mara Hedwig struggles to keep her business afloat. And her
daughter’s worsening condition forces her to rethink her beliefs about Carter
Callahan and his God. Will Mara make the return to Christian faith in the face
of life’s greatest challenge?
An ex-military operative struggles with the return to
civilian life while coping with his rebellious teen-aged daughter. During a
house-search, Carter meets Mara, a headstrong Realtor who wants nothing to do
with his God. But when Mara’s little girl is diagnosed with leukemia, the clock
begins ticking for him to convince Mara to return to a life of faith. Just as
he seems to be making headway, circumstances beyond his control throw his
efforts into a tailspin. Can Carter learn to rest in the sovereignty of God?

I have been pleasantly surprised by Cathy's books thus far. This is the second book that I've read in the Miller's Creek series and I'm a fan! Cathy's writing is so very good and her characters have depth and emotion. This book is about Mara and I really loved getting to know her and her daughter. I found the storyline to be realistic and the conversations about God interesting to read. Carter shows Mara what it really means to have a relationship with Christ and I think that was a strong point in the storyline. Mara's daughter starts to get sick again and it pulls the readers into the life of a single mom struggling to make ends meet.
This is such a great book and it reminds me a bit of Katie Ganshert's writing.
