In the process, their children falter in their faith and guilt colors everything about the future. Fumbling for forgiveness and hoping for a miracle, John and Abby must remember what is important and cling to that above all else.

Together, they're determined to move on with their lives. but is "together" enough for a future they never expected?

My Rating & Thoughts:       🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (5 stars)

I first met John and Abby Reynolds in the first book of this series titled “A Time to Dance”. I loved that one, and of course could not wait to read the next in the series.

This book is filled with inspiration. I loved following along with John and Abby and their family members as they navigated through life and the tragedy that strikes their family. Life can change so quickly and this book captures this, and shows just how important it is in how we deal with all of the situations of life. Not just the big devastating situations, but also in the smaller everyday situations of life.

This book deals with so many topics and life situations through the stories also told of John and Abby’s kids and also his football player’s lives. There are so many lessons to learn from this book. This book and this series is a must read.
