Isle of Hope: Unfailing Love
(Isle of Hope #1)
[Kindle | Amazon | The Book Depository]
She stole his heart. He stole her peace. Can hope steal their pain?
At the age of eighteen, Lacey Carmichael was a wild girl bent on fun, promised to Jack O'Bryen, a straight-and-narrow pastor’s kid bent on the seminary. When her father kicks her out of the house, she runs away from Isle of Hope, turning her back on everything she loves. Now, eight years later, she’s back as a woman of faith, hoping to make amends to the father she defied, the boyfriend she deserted, and the best friend she denied. Only the bridges she’s burned are still smoldering, kindled by an adulterous affair by Jack’s pastor father that damaged his son’s faith.
But can a turning of tables—and hearts—lead the way back to “hope” for them all?
