LaShondra and her Boaz, Stelson, are living the ideal American lifestyle, except for the subtle and not-so-subtle ways society keeps reminding them that they aren’t the norm. She’s African-American, he’s Caucasian, and their oldest child is already tackling the question of identity. It’s bad enough when outsiders show their ignorance or disdain. But when the issues come from family, LaShondra finds herself wondering if Stelson can truly comprehend the challenges looming on the horizon.
When a church picnic leads to a head-on clash between LaShondra’s fears and Stelson’s optimism, the truth prevails. But that’s just the beginning.
LaShondra learns that the drama during the family outing was only a set-up for an even more rigorous spiritual battle to save her family. After turning her back to the pressures at work and yielding to Stelson’s leadership, LaShondra finds herself interceding for a husband she hardly even recognizes anymore.
Is this the beginning of the end for the couple that truly endeavored to honor God’s ways, or will this season fortify their marriage for His glory?

Once I turned the first page in this second book in Boaz Brown Series I was hooked, I couldn’t give up until the end, and then I wanted more. Now you do not have to have read the first book to read this one, but highly recommend that you do.
There are parts of this book that you really need to have the tissues handy, as I had tears running down my eyes while trying to read. This will hit you in your heart in so many places, dealing with family emergencies, and an illness that doesn’t exist?
I loved this family and their friends, all there to show their love to one another, and grab and love the children too. Of course, how could anyone resist these two little cuties? They are all there for one another, and the compassion and love of God is so evident.
I learned some interesting things that I was not aware of while reading this book, and I pray that some of them are not true. Guess I want to keep my rose colored glasses on in regards to living in the USA. I also loved how God leads the way and how great and good is the power of prayer.
I highly recommend this fast read, you won’t regret it.
I received this book through Write Now Literary Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
