Love came to Elizabeth as thief—unexpected, unsought—and she feels for Matthew in ways she has never experienced before. But Elizabeth knows that love, true and deep, demands its price. Her heart is shattered the day she abandons Matthew as he stands alone along the dusty roadside with questions in his eyes. She prays he will one day fall in love with someone more worthy. Someone who can give him what she cannot. So begins Elizabeth’s Journey, following Elizabeth as she travels to places she never expected, for Columbus, Ohio is but the first stop. The trek exposes Elizabeth to the brutal realities of life, where she experiences pain and disappointment. The miles she travels also offer glimpses of unexpected triumphs, leading her to learn the depth of her strength as well as the full value of love. For though her pilgrimage covers thousands of miles, the most important distance she travels is within herself.
