He’s the only thing she has left to believe in…
Marissa was the first person to break Jacob’s heart. When they were children, she made it very clear that she wanted nothing to do with him. She didn’t mean to, but her mother had ordered her to stay away from her Sunday school crush: “He’s a nice boy – don’t you ruin him.” So she kept her feelings hidden, telling herself that no matter how sweet he seemed, he’d still end up turning on her, like everyone else did.
Jacob never loved anyone like he loved Marissa. He knows he should try to forget about her, especially now that he’s engaged and she’s happily married – or so everyone says. Even though they’ve grown and gone their separate ways, in their tightly-knit community, that still means seeing each other at every Sunday service, church picnic and backyard barbecue. He swears that her eyes still have that sad, haunted look, but he manages to keep his distance.
Until one night, when everything changes.
With Jacob’s relationship in shambles and Marissa pushed to the breaking point, they’re drawn together by an unstoppable force. Temptation is irresistible. Giving in is unthinkable. But it soon becomes clear that nothing – neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation – can keep them apart.
Please note: due to mature subject matter and themes, this book is recommended for readers eighteen and older. While this is NOT a work of religious or inspirational fiction, it features characters who are deeply involved in a devout community. It is not written from a religious perspective, but it is, in a way, partially a story about religion and its effects on people’s lives.
