When they told her about Southern hospitality, no one mentioned human trafficking.
The move to Bay Town, Mississippi was supposed to be a fresh start for single-mom Melanie and her daughter, Lacy. The quiet Southern town offers a nice relief after the frenetic-paced life of Los Angeles, but something sinister lurks beneath the surface.
Her bridal business struggles to take off, and instead of turning to the Lord, Melanie makes a desperate plea for help–from her ex-husband. Lacey is attacked, and while she is hospitalized, her friend goes missing—a victim of human trafficking out of New Orleans.
With her ex-husband showing true signs of repentance, the pastor she’d begun to fall for is taking a step back, and her daughter’s friend lost to the animals who stole her, Melanie goes on a desperate, dangerous mission to rescue the girl and get their lives back.
And she’ll do it with or without the Lord’s help.
How can Melanie find the girls and rescue them without getting caught herself? Why can’t she trust the Lord to keep them all safe, and which man in her life is the right one–if either?
Read this heart-gripping, pulse-racing novel and see how the Lord’s hand is on us, even when He seems so very far away.

Melanie felt terrible for putting the poor man on the defensive. “Oh, you didn’t. I’m fine with it. My daughter, Lacey, and I started out living with my parents, and they helped me out. It was my father that pushed me into getting this business going.”
He seemed to be interested.
“So, Lacey’s father and I were married for barely a year. He wasn’t even there when she was born. He came back once, but we got divorced before her first birthday.”
“Doesn’t sound like such a great guy.” His eyes grew wide. “Oh. I’m sorry again. I didn’t mean to judge. I don’t even know the guy.” He removed the sunglasses resting on the top of his head and attempted to shove them in his front shirt pocket. Twice.
Melanie laughed. “Actually, he was a great guy, just a terrible husband. I made some foolish choices back then. But God blessed me with a wonderful daughter.”
“Yes, Lacey’s pretty special. She sure brightens up the church on Sunday mornings.”
Hearing him say her daughter’s name warmed her heart and made something spark. A sigh escaped. “So, let’s make an appointment for this couple.”
