Once orphaned, newly divorced, a schoolteacher questions God’s plan when she falls in love with a grieving widower in this inspirational romance.
 
Given up for adoption at birth, schoolteacher Faith Holmes has spent her life trying to prove she is enough: good enough, smart enough, pretty enough. When she finds her husband with another woman––yet again—she has trouble forgiving him as she has in the past. So he divorces her. Rejected first by her parents, now by her husband, Faith begins to wonder if God has rejected her, too.
 
In the midst of her marital trials, Faith has to deal with surly Luke Johnson, the father of one of her students. Consumed with guilt, Luke blames himsels for his wife’s recent death. His daughter, Emmie, struggles with both her schoolwork and the loss of her mother, and Faith is determined to help her despite Luke’s resistance. As time passes, Luke sees Faith for the wonderful woman she is. But as much as Faith wants to accept Luke’s affection, she wonders if she could ever be enough to heal his wounded heart.
 
Rescuing Faith is a story of how God’s perfect love and truth helps two people overcome guilt and insecurity for the sake of a future together.

A NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY bestseller

“This character-driven romance will enthrall [Rivers’s] many fans.” Library Journal

The New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love returns to her romance roots with this unexpected and redemptive love story, a probing tale that reminds us that mercy can shape even the most broken among us into an imperfect yet stunning masterpiece.

A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want―money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman’s past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn’t know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist―an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.

Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it’s as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together . . . until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship―and both their lives―forever.

“Rivers deftly threads Roman’s and Grace’s lives together as they tiptoe around their emotional scars, eventually shifting into a dance of tentative steps toward a love neither can resist. Fans of Christian romance will delight in this tale of salvation through love.” Kirkus Reviews

“Richly detailed characters with traumatic pasts are woven together with biblical truths and redemptive themes. . . . This is an amazing, beautifully written tale to be savored and pondered and shared with others.” Romantic Times

“Readers will marvel at Rivers’s storytelling arc encompassing the reconciliation of gritty past misdeeds and the work in progress of a life of forgiveness.” Booklist

“Fans of Francine Rivers will eagerly devour The Masterpiece and find exactly what they are looking for: a beautifully written story of faith, romance, and the power that true freedom can bring.” Bookreporter.com
