Product Description


Until Angelina came into Samantha’s life, it had been a myriad of pain, abuse, and lies. Sam allows herself to dream of a home with Angelina, when the little girl is taken away, taking Sam's hopes and dreams as well.

She prays she'll find Angelina. But doubts God even hears her. How could he with her so dirty? And how could she trust a God who she believes abandoned her? Hopefully this God wouldn’t abandon Angelina.

God uses the gentle hands of another carpenter to show Samantha she was never alone. He strips back the layers of abuse that have tarnished her faith and worth to teach Sam there is mercy instead of shame, and love instead of hurt. He shows her that though itseems out of reach, she always had freedom in Christ.


"What did you think of the sermon, Samantha?"

Sam thought she'd choke on her cherry pie right there. And practically did.

"Here now." The reverend laughed as he patted her back. "Did we find a pit or was the sermon that bad?"

Visiting with a reverend was bad enough, but a reverend with humor. Sam started to choke all over again. She waved her hand in front of her face to circulate the air and gulped a deep breath. Then if her teary eyes and choking weren't enough, she had to go and snort on her exhale. Not some delicate little snort either -- no, it was a full-bodied thing. She sounded like her stepfather's grand sow. Her skin warmed. Soon she would even be as pink as the pig.

It was a disaster, unavoidable, but a disaster nonetheless. She'd never get another invite. Groaning softly, Sam put her head in her hands until she could breathe again. It'd be easier if the good reverend would quit patting her back, disrupting her heartbeat. But how did one tell a reverend to stop?

"Are you all right?" Ruth asked.

"Yes, yes." Sam surfaced, her face on fire. Reverend Trent's hand lifted from her back. "It went down the wrong pipe," she replied meekly.

"Are you sure you're all right?" the reverend asked. He handed her his napkin. Sam used it as a shield to compose behind. "It hurts something fierce when it does that," he added sympathetically.

Sam dabbed her watery eyes so she wouldn't have to look at him. 'Cause the preacher man's smile was soft, beguiling.
