Can they keep their friendship pure when their hearts long for more?

McKenna Nichols, a young wife abandoned by her husband in favor of his work, is left alone to raise their autistic child. She promised to love him until death parted them. But when circumstances drive a wedge into their marriage and Dane chooses to escape what life has dealt them, how long can she be strong? Can she remain faithful to her marriage vows when tempted by the friendship of an unlikely stranger?

Rudy Taylor, who senses McKenna’s loneliness and understands the difficulty of raising her daughter, struggles to keep his concern for the young woman biblical. Will McKenna’s faith in God and Rudy’s commitment to his Lord be enough to keep their relationship simple until McKenna’s husband one day returns?

BOOK EXCERPT

“Therefore, God said, let a man leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife and they will become one flesh. What God has brought together, let no one put asunder.”

McKenna sniffed, holding the camera close to her face to hide the moisture trickling down her cheeks. She needed Dane’s protection, strength, and love. The pastor’s words cut deep, the knife of her pain stemming from Dane’s absence. He only saw the physical side of his responsibility—keeping her fed and sheltered. Emotionally and spiritually, she lived in a state of drought. Her heart ached to be held. Her prayers seemed to fall on deaf ears. 

What am I supposed to do, God? I’m so alone. So forgotten. I want to honor my marriage vows by remaining faithful, but I don’t know if I’m strong enough to endure the everlasting loneliness in which I am imprisoned. I need to be freed of these bonds. Please bring Dane home.  Sydney needs a father in her life. Help us. I’m falling apart.
