When Brionney Fields marries a handsome, charming Derek Roathe, she feels like
her life is a Mormon fairy tale come true. And when baby Savannah comes along,
she's sure of it. Then, with a horrifying discovery, the dream is shattered and
her fairytale begins to unravel. Trying to pick up the bits and pieces of her
life, she wonders if she'll ever be able to take a chance at love again.
The answer finally comes, but is Brionney ready for it? Can she set aside a
world of pain for the hope of true love? She's heard all the promises before,
but they've been empty and tainted by lies. Why should she believe them now?
In this compelling and emotional story of love, betrayal, and soul-wrenching
challenges, best-selling author Rachel Ann Nunes creates memorable characters
and dramatic moments that will live in the reader's mind and heart long after
the book is closed. Join Brionney as she leans that the road to true love and
happiness is never easy . . . but in the end it's worth every prayer, every
tear, and every leap of faith along the way.
