Having worn the yoke of slavery, Lavette Johnson knows bitterness. Even now, she is bound by a commitment that limits her freedom. Resentment over what she has lost has robbed her of any spiritual peace.
Though blacksmith Josiah Washington knows the goodness of God’s grace, he still longs for a wife. When he sees Lavette, Josiah is convinced that God has answered his prayers. Sensing a sweetness beneath Lavette’s anguish and fear, Josiah hopes gently to woo Lavette’s heart and serve as the Holy Spirit’s tool to lead her to God.
Just when victory seems within reach, circumstances deal Josiah a crushing blow. How will he handle his disappointment? Can Lavette’s wounded heart be healed? Will the Lord allow these two to experience the sweetness of salvation and love?
