Hope has not time for God. Why should she? When her mother was dying, God didn't answer Hope's prayers. Now, Hope immerses herself in science, where the world is concrete and definite, unwilling to entertain faith ever again. Hope is dismayed to find that Rick, the interesting new man in her life, considers faith an important part of his existence. No matter how much she enjoys Rick's company, she determines he cannot be the man for her. Never again will she trust God the way she did before her mother's death. But the more Hope comes to know Rick, the harder he is to resist. And when she meets his family, she finds herself falling in love with them, as well. Hope's lonely heart longs to be part of this family forever--but that might require her to trust in God once again.
