Karlee Reynolds never knew that life could be as rewarding as it was for her in the beginning. At the age of twenty-six Karlee was going to get married, have a family and then in the blink of an eye everything was gone. Her fiancé Timothy was hit head on by a drunk driver and died at the scene. Karlee never imagined that she would have been left so broken and alone.
Elijah Harris was your typical human being, trying to do the right thing. He always put God first in everything, even his career as a Firefighter. One day that all changed for him when he wasn’t able to save someone who needed it. His faith in God is tested when he is left with the guilt of someone’s death upon his shoulders. How do you live with yourself knowing you couldn’t save someone?
As Karlee and Elijah’s paths cross, both will have their faith tested. What do you do when the one person who can save you, is the one person who reminds you of everything that was lost?
(Our own paper book for our honest review.)
This is a story that comes full circle. Elijah Harris is a God fearing firefighter that questions his faith after he couldn’t save a man, Timothy, from a car accident that Timothy burned in. After questioning his existence , Elijah moved away from the town and found himself with different people. One of the people he met was Karlee Reynolds who was getting over the lost of her ex-fiancé , Timothy. Elijah figured out about the connection and tried to distances himself from Karlee. Elijah felt he was not worthy of Karlee. But one little person with a big voice helped Elijah and Karlee with life.
This was a HEA story. The author wanted you to think and question your faith with God and how God is always there when you least expect it.
