Tessa is stuck in Willow Creek, Iowa, with no food, no money, no home, no job. No future. Mama is dead and Papa left. Where are God's promises now? Maybe Papa's right, and she really is worthless - so worthless even God doesn't care about her. When Gideon rescued a girl from a beating by her own father in the middle of the street, he never expected to find love. His own problems are overwhelming - his business is failing and his dreams look more doubtful by the minute. But he can't get Tessa out of his mind.
