Starting over isn’t always easy; and finding forgiveness and a place to call home can be a real blessing.
After serving six years in prison for the false charge of manslaughter in the death of his wife, Kurt Jansen must overcome a world of bitterness if he wants to start a new life. But his first priority is securing a restoration job to pay a private investigator to find the real killer and a lawyer to get his kids back.
Hiring a convicted wife-killer isn’t what kind-hearted Molly Finnerty bargains for as part of the prison ministry she supports. However, she begins to believe Kurt’s claim of innocence and gradually finds much to like about him—perhaps more to like than she should.
Can they overcome the past and find forgiveness and love?
Each book stands alone, but the stories are connected through setting or characters.
