Product Description

A gripping new novel from New York Times bestselling suspense author Terri Blackstock.

One father was murdered. Another was convicted of his death. All because their children fell in love.

Nate Beckett has spent his life fighting wildfires instead of the lies and rumors that drove him from his Colorado hometown. His mother begs him to come back now that his father has been released from prison, but it isn't until he's sidelined by an injury that he's forced to return and face his past. But that means facing Brenna too.

Fourteen years ago, Nate was in love with the preacher's daughter. When Pastor Strickland discovered Brenna defied him to sneak out with Nate, the fight between Strickland and Nate's drunken dad was loud--and very public. Strickland was found murdered later that night, and everyone accused Roy Beckett. When the church burned down not long after, people assumed Nate set the fire to get even for his father's conviction. He let the rumors fly and left town without looking back.

Brenna is stunned to learn that the man convicted of murdering her father has been pardoned. The events of that night set her life on a bad course, and now she's fighting a brutal custody battle with her ex and his new wife where he's using lies and his family's money to sway the judge. Brenna is barely hanging on, and she's turned to alcohol to cope. Shame and fear consume her.

As Nate and Brenna deal with the present--including new information about that fateful night and a wildfire that's threatening their town--the past keeps igniting. Nate is the steady force Brenna has so desperately needed. But she'll have to learn to trust him again first.

About the Author

Terri Blackstock

Terri Blackstock

Terri Blackstock hasn’t always written for the Lord. Just six years ago she was an award-winning secular novelist writing for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, and Silhouette. But with thirty-two titles published and 3.5 million books in print, she found that she was miserable. The compromises she had made in her career had taken their toll on her spiritual life, and she yearned to get back into a right relationship with Christ.

After much soul-searching and wrestling with God, she finally told the Lord that she would never write another thing that didn’t glorify Him. Thinking she might never be published again, she began planning ways to supplement her income, while she worked on her first idea for a Christian novel.

Because she enjoyed reading suspense novels by John Grisham and Mary Higgins Clark, she decided to try weaving a faith message into a fast-paced page-turner with ordinary people in jeopardy. When Christian publishers expressed great interest, she realized that a secondary job would not be necessary. God was paving the way for her to enter the Christian publishing world.

Since that time, she has published thirteen novels, eight of which have been best-sellers. She writes about flawed Christians in crises, and God’s provision for their mistakes and wrong choices. While most of her novels are in the mystery/suspense genre, she has also rewritten four of her earlier books as Christian romances. In addition to that, she is co-author of a series of “family values” novels with Beverly LaHaye. Their first book, Seasons Under Heaven, debuted at number three on the CBA Best-Seller List. Her latest books include Word of Honor (a suspense novel set in south Louisiana) and Showers in Season, written with Beverly LaHaye.

Terri has appeared on national television programs such as The 700 Club and Home Life and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. She has been the subject of several magazine articles, and the story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey and True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa.
