About the Book
Former bad girl Katie Stone can feel the weight of her reputation settle over her as she drives home for the first time in years. Feeling deeply guilty about her past mistakes, Katie wants to do the right thing for once. But the small town where she grew up is not nearly as forgiving as she’d hoped. Despite it all, she’s determined to help her parents cope with her mother’s recent illness, and Katie finds a surprise ally in the man next door.
Asher Powell never minded being the son of a small-town pastor until a recent breakup leaves him wounded by lifelong members of his church. He remembers his new neighbor as a mean-spirited high school troublemaker, but he senses that her newfound faith and desire for forgiveness are sincere.
Through an unexpected friendship, two people from different worlds find peace, hope, and a second chance they never dreamed was possible.

Tammy L. Gray has written an inspiring story of mistakes, forgiveness, redemption, and love. Throughout the story, Katie Stone struggles with the mistakes and choices from her past and the changes she has made and is continuing to make to be a better person; to heal the relationships with her parents and previous friends that she hurt. Katie begins a lovely friendship with the boy next door, Asher Powell (the preacher’s son). And their friendship blossoms into a precious and beautiful romance. But Katie’s past mistakes still haunt her and she doesn’t know if a good, kind man like Asher Powell really wants to be with her and stay with her, even though he has made some mistakes of his own. Katie must face her past in order to obtain the future that she so desperately desires. I love the powerful story of Katie’s change and change of heart. This story has deeply developed characters that readers will become attached to. A deeply heart stirring story, readers will not want to miss this delightful read.
