    Awards & Honors: 2012 First Coast Romance Writers Published Beacon Contest 3rd Place winner Coffee Time Reviewer's Recommend Award winner Long and Short Reviews Book of the Week nominee 5 cups from Coffee Time Romance & More 5 stars from MyBookAddictionReviews 5 stars from Huntress Reviews 4 1/2 books from Long and Short Reviews 5 Cups! “What a powerful story! Ms. Wiesner has taken issues that normally would not be talked about in the same sentences let alone written about. She has written a story so worthy of your time with characters who are so flawed and real one cannot help but feel what they are feeling as well. With real issues, a Christian theme and a bit of romance, what more could you ask for in a good book?” ~Coffee Time Romance & More 5 Stars! “A good book. It teaches us no matter what our past has been or the horror within, healing comes after suffering. God loves us and will forgive us. A really good story!” ~My Book Addiction Reviews 4 ½ Books and Book... More > of the Week Nominee! “Don't do what I did, and start this fast paced page turner at 10 pm. Not unless you're more of a night owl than I am and are prepared to stay up until after midnight reading. This is a well written, fast moving romance about a very damaged heroine who has, understandably, decided God has not been listening to her. The author does an excellent job of portraying both the heroine's initial belief that God doesn't answer her prayers and therefore is a fraud, and her realization that He will listen, if only she will come out of her shell, stop keeping silent about the horrors of her past and reach out. I was particularly moved by Jay's response to realizing that he took her parents' pious mouthings at face value, and that he failed to be there for Ashley in the way she needed him to be. The reaction of the church elders when he confronts them with their blindness is believable. I wanted to shake the elders and give Jay a hug. But the author raises an interesting problem here: how ready should we be to question someone else's professions of faith? Do we embrace them with open arms, even if we have doubts, hoping that they will see the light, or do we hold them at arms’ length, questioning their faith? I found Ashley largely sympathetic, and the characters and the situations portrayed in the book are ones that I continue to turn over in my mind. If you enjoy inspirational romance about serious spiritual dilemmas, you're sure to enjoy this fine book.” ~Long and Short Reviews< Less
