Have You Had To Make Changes In Your Life?

"Lin Stepp's Newest Book! Great Read." Susan Reichert, author of "Conquering Ours Fears With Christ"

Sometimes life's unexpected hardships force you to consider drastic changes you'd never have dreamed of but lead in time to some sweet and unexpected joys.

Laura O'Dell's life lately has been full of nothing but problems. Her father has died, she's lost her home, and now the family business she owns and loves is being taken by imminent domain to make way for a widened road. On top of it all, her sister and boyfriend came for a visit at Christmas and have stayed on and on, freeloading on her good nature. Maybe as Lillian advises, it's time to seek a big life change as far away from Amory, Mississippi as possible.

When Mitchell Quinlan dropped by a new business in Waynesville, NC, to welcome the owner and put in a word for employment for some friends, he was unprepared for the jolt of unexpected feelings that hit him in meeting Laura O'Dell. As a sensible businessman, he'd thought that sort of attraction a figment or books or movies. Yet, as he gets to know Laura, he learns she is holding a lot of secrets and not open to share them with him.
