'Funny, charming and un-put-downable' Susan Mallery
Rachel Stone's bad luck has taken a turn for the worse. With an empty wallet, a car's that's spilling smoke and a five-year-old son to support, she's come home to a town that hates her. But this determined young widow with a scandalous past has learned how to be a fighter. And she'll do anything to keep her child safe . . .
Gabe Bonner has just about survived the loss of his wife and child. Now all he wants is to be left alone, especially by the beautiful outcast who's invaded his property. Rachel has a ton of attitude, a talent for trouble and a child who brings back painful memories. Yet this woman with nothing left to lose might just be the one person strong enough to teach a tough, stubborn man how to love again.

Setting her story in Salvation, N.C., Phillips adeptly develops the theme of love's healing power. Broke and desperate to provide a better life for her son, gutsy Rachel Stone ends up in Salvation when her car breaks down. She knows the place--even worse, they know her as the widow of G. Dwayne Snopes, a televangelist who fled stealing millions. Luckily, Gabe Bonner, who owns a drive-in theater where Rachel asks for work, seems to be the only person who doesn't recognize her right off. Rachel's proud mettle distracts Gabe from the grief of his own tragic loss, but enemies strike out at Rachel, while Gabe's brothers mount a family defense against the gold-digging widow. Phillips (Heaven, Texas) digs deep to expose weaknesses and strengths in the psyche and faith of her characters. The result is a book that is touching, funny, sexy and humane.
