Cal Morrison was one of the best firefighters they had in Montrose. But a tragedy he went through during a fire has left him with fears he can't get over, thus putting him on non-active duty. He is dealing with all this when in walks Laurie, a woman he fell in love with a long time ago, but who chose to leave town and marry for money and prestige and leave small-town life behind her. Laurie finds herself running from her husband after the discovery of his drug involvement, with her 2 adorable small children. She comes home to Montrose. Now it is a struggle for both Laurie and Cal. It is obvious they both still care for each other, but Cal has issues he must face and Laurie does too, and neither want to be honest with the other. They both try to handle life on their own without the help of a God they know exists, but He isn't someone they think cares. Only when they let go and let God have complete control, a loving and faithful God, can they find true peace in their life. I appreciated the way the author dealt with the realistic ways people often think of God and how she brought them around to truly understanding who He really is. A good story and well worth reading. For me it started out a little slow, but quickly got me hooked.
