Mallory Hammond vowed to save a life back when she was a teen after her chance to save her cousin was denied. Now she has another, different chance to offer needed help, but this time the stakes are dramatically higher. She leaves behind her beloved boyfriend Tate and heads to Pakistan to help save Majida, daughter of her new pen pal, Abdul. Meanwhile Tate becomes the reluctant caregiver for a troubled 10-year-old boy, and remains skeptical about Mallory's trip to Pakistan. His worries prove to be well-founded; not all is as it seems with Abdul, which forces Mallory to come to terms with God and with her feelings for Tate. Bestselling author Wiseman (The House that Love Built) encourages readers to think through their feelings about Islam, Christianity, faith, love, and what it means to help others. Her novel will challenge, encourage, and stimulate discussion among her loyal fans and first-time readers.
