At age forty-five, Dr. Neil Taylor is an eligible bachelor, living a seemingly satisfied existence as a deacon of his church and director of Kingdom Builder's Academy. Despite outward appearances, however, Neil harbors secret pains that have caused him to erect a well-constructed wall of defense around his heart.
Everything changes when Shaylynn Ford, a beautiful young mother, strolls through the doors of his office. There's a marked difference in their ages, but the years that separate them are the least of Neil's worries.
Neil is certain that Shaylynn is his God-given soul mate, but even with all the prayers in the world, how can he get her to love him when she's already wearing a wedding ring?
