Sixty thousand people watched as Candace Rodriguez literally fell off the stage while performing the national anthem, wrecking more than her self-esteem. Is her music career over? Now, weighing 350 pounds and jilted by her fiancé after the shame of her public fall, can she find another chance at true love? Will her new Christian faith anchor her future hopes?
Former highbrow stock trader, "JB" Patrickson has had enough of life making mockery of his best laid-out future plans. His father insisted he'd never make it more than selling "chickn" stock in Kentucky. Proving him wrong, JB succeeded at the NY Stock Exchange, becoming one of the best US traders...until the market crashed in 2008. Seven years later and mired in debt, he can't shake the urge that God is leading him down a different path. The path of accepting his grandmother's request to come help manage her farm, despite his little to nothing knowledge about farming. Has he fallen low enough to toil with his hands to eke out a single meal? What future could God plan for him on a farm?
Twenty years after returning to the US from a fulfilling medical mission in Asia, Dr. and Dr. Mrs. Cantwell gratefully send off two sons to college, purchase a flourishing 20-acre farm, and prepare to settle into their empty nest stage. But what will they do if God leads one more life into their path, one needing stitches of the soul not of the body? Can they answer his call to service, or will overlooked pain from the past threaten the fragile peace they'd so desperately coaxed into existence to survive together?
Find out how these lives intersect at the Day Spring Farms, and watch what God can do to turn brokenness and shattered dreams into masterpieces.

Inspiring - CASTS HOPE for us all!
Great insight into the real Struggles and VICTORY of a Successful Woman eho admits she has less than perfect life - Even so, with JESUS you can come THROUGH it better, stringer and happier!
Okay story, annoying narration.
Any additional comments?
Narrator is just a reader, really annoying, so I sped it up to get through it faster. Story is okay, good inspiration, but not much depth.

Good book for Christian readers
Thought provoking in places inspired by the character's faith. I enjoyed the story also of the protagonist's weight loss, though it wasn't believable. The details of farm life and recording studio life were a bit shaky but worth a listen.
