Description

The nationally bestselling author of Delilah's Daughters and The Amen Sisters returns with a moving story about a single mother who discovers the woman she can be in one unforgettable summer. As a single mother, Destiny makes sacrifices for her children-including saying goodbye for the summer so they can spend time with their father and stepmother. Though she'll miss them with all her heart, the time alone gives her an opportunity to address her own needs, like finish getting her college degree. But Destiny's friends think her summer should include some romance. Destiny doesn't want to be set up...until she meets Daniel. The handsome, warm and charming pastor soon sweeps Destiny off her feet. But is romance what she really wants? Or needs? As the days pass, Destiny will make new discoveries-about herself, the man she's fallen for, and the people around her. And she'll face challenging choices. But most of all, she'll grow in ways she never imagined, learning unexpected lessons about trust, forgiveness, and the price of motherhood...and truly become the woman she wants to be.

Review quote

Praise for Delilah's Daughters: "I could not put it down. The themes of faith, family and forgiveness drew me in and wouldn't let go until the very last page." -- Vanessa Miller, Author of How Sweet the Sound "This sweetly tender story of one family's attempt to navigate the rocky waters of stardom focuses on the importance of loyalty, sacrifice, and second chances...[a] charming, inspirational novel." -- Booklist "Powerful! Angela Benson has written a novel of hope and strength that encourages us all in the church to take off the blinders and replace them with the Armor of God." -- Michele Andrea Bowen on The Amen Sisters "She is just as compelling a writer in Christian romance as she is in contemporary." -- AffairedeCoeur.com (generic quote)
