Today is Jayden Arman’s emancipation. No longer will the eighteen-year-old be someone’s meal ticket or a case number in an overburdened foster care system. No matter how uncertain her future is, it has to be better than the last ten years of her life, she figures … if only she didn’t have to leave her five-year-old foster sister Emma behind.
Jonathan Baxter, a local youth pastor, has been Jayden’s only friend, mentor, and confidante. Yet secretly he longs for more.
From the instant he sought shelter from a rainstorm and saw Jayden in Mr. Weiskopf’s pharmacy, Daniel Taylor is convinced he’s met the woman of his dreams. But what about his lifelong dream of going back to Africa?
Caught between the love of two men, Jayden must unravel the threads of a family mystery that will change forever what she believes to be true about herself … and those she loves.
