A widow and mother of six, Miranda Hanford leads a quiet, private life. When the pastor of her close-knit church announces his plans to move the entire congregation to another state, Miranda jumps at the opportunity to dissolve ties with Mason Chandler and his controlling method of ruling his flock. But then Mason threatens to unearth secrets from her past, and Miranda feels trapped, terrified she’ll be unable to protect her children.College professor Jack Hanford is more than surprised when he gets a call from his estranged sister-in-law’s oldest son, Timothy, informing him that Miranda has taken a serious fall and he has been named legal guardian of her children while she recovers. Quickly charmed by Miranda’s children, Jack brings some much-needed life into the sheltered household. But his constant challenging of the family’s conservative lifestyle makes the recovering mother uneasy and defensive—despite Jack’s unnerving appeal.As Jack tries to make sense of the mysterious Miranda and the secrets she holds so tightly, Mason’s pressure on her increases. With her emotions stirring and freedom calling, can Miranda find a way to unshackle her family without losing everything?

    " Fantastic, nearly flawless book. Mosely presents the two ends of Christianity and weaves a story showing the strengths and weaknesses of both. Love, drama, intrigue...wonderful book. "

    " I'm really looking forward to this book! It sounds like a great read. As a mother I enjoy books that show what a mother can do and this one sounds very interesting. Plus the whole cult like thing is always so intriguing! Can't wait to read this one!! "

    " I loved this book. And even better, I knew by about the second page that I would love it. It's awesome when that happens. I really want to just move in with the family and become Miranda's new best friend. Can I do that? "

    " A little bit slow in the beginning, but it picked up quickly. The characters pulled me in and the story line was powerful yet relatable. The ending could have been more dramatic, but I like how the title of the book finished out the story. "

    " Why did I finish this sappy, syrupy, unrealistic book? Maybe I kept thinking it would get better. It didn't. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 4/23/2012

    " I listened to this one on CD. It was OK, but I wasn't terribly excited about it. It sounded interesting, but was one of the most boring books I've listened to recently. I forced myself to finish it, so that I could start the other audio book I had checked out from the library. "
