And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love.
~ Ephesians 3:17
Angie Hunter left Hart’s Crossing for college and never looked back. So when her widowed mother needs care following surgery, Angie is more than ready to hire a nurse rather than return to her antiquated hometown. But when she is passed over for a promotion at work, an angry Angie quits and heads home anyway.
Francine Hunter is both excited and nervous about having her daughter home for the next two months. She sees this as her chance to make a new connection with her estranged daughter. Will she be able to nudge Angie toward faith without overdoing it? Or will Angie pack up and leave for a new job as soon as Francine has recovered?

Christy and RITA award winner Hatcher here launches a new four-book series about the residents of a small community in Idaho. The last place Angie Hunter wants to be is back in Hart’s Crossing taking care of her preachy mother, Francine, who is recovering from hip surgery. Angie has not been home for more than a few days at a time over the last 17 years. Francine prays that her daughter will find her way back to her faith and her family (and possibly produce a grandchild or two), but her daughter does not want anything to do with her mother’s religious beliefs. It is not long, though, before Angie runs into high school chum Bill Palmer and renews their friendship. There is still an attraction between them, but Bill is now a committed Christian, making it difficult for the two to have a future together. As Angie continues to experience the peace and stability of life in her hometown, she begins to drop her defenses and allow God to heal her. Hatcher has written several successful series, including Coming to America and The Americana. Her numerous fans will want this slim novel. — The Library Journal
