ElleÆs living the dreamùbut whose dream is it?
Elle loves her life in Beaufort, South Carolinaùsummer days on the sand bar, coastal bonfires, and dinners with friends, sharing a lifetime of memories. SheÆs found her stride professionally as the owner of a successful art gallery. Life is good.
And sheÆs found love with handsome, confident Jeremiah Franklin. But Jeremiah has accepted a large pastorate in a different state, so Elle turns her life upside down to take ôthe callö with him. When Jeremiah has a change of heart, Elle is hurtùand her faith is shaken.
New York lawyer and recent widower Heath McCord imagines the lowcountry cottage heÆs rented for the summer is the balm his grieving heart needs. That and time to connect with his little girl. HeÆs unprepared to meet his beautiful landlord, Elle Garvy, or the love her friendship awakens.
But God has new blessings in store for the two grieving hearts. Can Elle trust so soon after losing Jeremiah? Can Heath release the memory of his wife and love again? Could love be as simple as trusting enough to take the first step?
