As a single mother, Maddy Walkers life has been anything but easy, yet despite her pain and loss, she has committed her life to loving and serving others. Throughout the story, Maddys faith is stretched as God teaches her how to love, enabling her to touch the lives of many people in her community. When Maddy discovers that she is facing some serious health issues, she is tempted to withdraw, uncertain she has anything left to give. Her only prayer is to live long enough to see her daughter married and to know that Dani will be taken care of. But God is not finished with Maddy.
When Isobelle Davis moves to town, God prompts Maddy to befriend her. Thrown into the midst of unwelcome change, Isobelle is struggling with feelings of anger and discontentment. Yet God uses what Isobelle views as a negative circumstance to provide an answer to Maddys prayer. In the process, Isobelles attitude is transformed and she gains new perspective as she is able to see how Gods hand was orchestrating it all.
