 Laura Hilton’s novel portrays the anguish of a fallen teenager and the hurts that interfere with her ability to trust others. Becky Troyer has supposedly repented and been forgiven by her church, but hides from the gossip and disregard by her peers. Her heart weeps every day.

 Jacob Miller arrives to work among the community, sent by his father to remove the young man from an unsuitable girlfriend. Jacob, a friendly, caring fellow immediately tries to encourage Becky, but she often rebuffs his efforts.

 In a continual comedy of errors, Jacob and Becky trust, mistrust, understand and misunderstand each other. Will they ever resolve their fears and find happiness?

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
