Emily Anderson, now twenty, is attending college on a soccer
scholarship when she meets the man who changes everything for her: Army
reservist Justin Baker. Their tender relationship, founded on a mutual
faith in God and nurtured by their trust and love for each other, proves
to be a shining inspiration to everyone they know, especially Emily’s
reunited birth parents, Lauren Gibbs and Shane Galanter.

Lauren and
Shane still struggle to move past their opposing beliefs about war,
politics, and faith. Shane believes it’s possible; Lauren doesn’t. So
she says a painful good-bye to her long-ago love and returns to her job
as a war correspondent in Afghanistan. Both Lauren and Shane are
shattered, believing that this time their relationship has truly ended
forever. Then tragedy sends shock waves through all their lives.

Lauren and Shane set aside their opposing views so that love — God’s
love — might win, no matter how great the odds?
