Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.

"Known for her Amish romances and Texas-set contemporaries, Wiseman takes a plotline from a situation in her own life and creates an intense narrative about what happens when a woman chooses to follow her heart into a culture very different from her own. An inspiring reminder that God is always with us, even in the bleakest of situations. Recommended for fans of Malala Yousafzai's I Am Malala." ---Library Journal * Library Journal *
