So many times in reading this book, my heart ached for different characters and the particular trials they were each facing. So many times, I found myself truly caring about what happened to the characters collectively and individually. This book was deep, the characters were real, the plot was dramatic and the pace was fast. I had difficulty putting it down. One sentence spoke volumes about the brilliance of this novel, “… because who outside of God himself would have known a brilliant, deaf kid, a vegan hippie, and a toeless soldier would find themselves as some sort of family.” Amen.

Her Rescue Might Be the Miracle They Needed
Deputy Benjamin Patil is the one to find the infant girl – hours old, abandoned in a field. When the mother can't be located, Ben and his wife, Abbi, seem like the perfect couple to serve as foster parents. But the baby's arrival opens old wounds for Abbi and shines a harsh light on how much Ben has changed since a devastating tour in Iraq. As their marriage teeters on the brink, they now must choose to either reclaim what they once had or lose each other forever.
