Two Loving Friends. One Powerful Faith. A Life-Threatening Secret.

Raised by a mother who was haunted by worry and fear, Jill vowed to live a different kind of life. As a young woman, she planned out what she wanted—a husband, a large home full of children, the opportunity to paint and grow a beautiful garden, a community of believers, and a best friend—then watched as it all came true in the art-filled town of Ashland, Oregon.

But Jill has a secret that she has kept from those she loves most, including her husband and her best friend, Caye—and she’s not the only one with something to hide. Her mother also has not told Jill the whole truth about her father and the disease that claimed his life. Together, these secrets shatter Jill’s idyllic world.

Now, driven by uncertainty and questions, compassion and mercy, Jill and Caye face a test of friendship unlike any other—a test that will lead one of them to powerful revelations about faith and love, and the other to the realization that trust in God encompasses all things.
