Trinity Everhart thought her life was perfect—until it all changed within the blink of an eye…
Stuck in an abusive relationship after her mother’s death, Trinity neglects her connection with God while she lives in constant fear for her life. She wants nothing more than to break free from the prison she’s in and to return to a life that includes her love for photography and her religion. When she makes her escape, Trinity finds herself in the company of people who are willing to help her start over.
Gates Longman has seen his fair share of horrors and doesn’t need any more complications…
The ex-Navy SEAL wants to live his life in peace at Smith Mountain Lake, yet when an old friend calls upon him to aid a helpless young woman, he’s unable to say no. After agreeing to help Trinity and hearing her story, Gates is convinced the man from her past won’t let her go so easily, and he’s determined to do whatever he can to keep her safe.
To get through the toughest storms, sometimes all you need is love and a little faith…
At his cabin, Trinity finds solace and a chance to grow closer to God again, while Gates is given an opportunity to break down his inner walls. The more time they spend together, the more comfortable they become, bringing out feelings they have difficulty controlling. Now they need to decide if being together is just a chance happening, or if God’s hand is a bigger part of it.
But Trinity still isn’t safe, and there’s a danger lurking in the shadows, threatening to break down what they have managed to build together…
