Melanie runs away.
From conflict. From pain. From reality.
When novelist Melanie Vander faces a looming deadline, she decides it's time for an escape to an inspiring, novel-worthy locale. She's not running away. Really. She just needs time to focus. But as she disappears into her writing, she encounters a man whose tenderness leaves her reeling. Engaging and wise, psychologist Elliot Hammond tempts Melanie to question everything, including her marriage.
But that's ridiculous. Dr. Hammond isn't even... real.
Melanie's husband, Craig, has his own problems, including a recession that's threatening his business. Waning finances, a looming home foreclosure, and a wife who's checked out emotionally have Craig feeling as though he's carrying his burdens alone. When his client, the beautiful and single Serena Buchanan, offers him a fix to his financial woes, he's tempted by more than her offer of a business solution.
At a crossroads, Melanie and Craig seem headed in opposite directions.
Will Melanie run again? Or will she allow her characters to lead her home?
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV
