Kendra Woods has always known success. Raised in a prominent black family in well-to-do Clayton, Missouri, she had high aspirations for herself and, thus far, has met them. After graduating from law school she went to work at a prestigious law firm. Now she’s just made partner and in one month will marry the man of her dreams. And it’s only the beginning. Kendra envisions herself becoming a judge one day and she can’t wait to have kids. But a terminal diagnosis of inflammatory breast cancer shatters her world—weeks before her wedding.
Kendra is devastated as the reality sets in that she could have no more than two years to live. Her fiancé leaves, and as word travels around the firm, she’s no longer given big cases. Kendra is angry with God and feels her life has already ended.
Her path keeps crossing Lance’s, a troublemaker who briefly attended her high school. Kendra has trouble letting go of the person he was a decade ago and can’t believe an encounter in jail turned his life around and he’s now leading a church plant in Clayton. He’s becoming the unlikely source of hope she needs.
Kendra is in the midst of a storm — one that’s apparently here to stay. But the hidden blessings may be just the shelter she needs.
