Mortified after her semester abroad is cut short, Amelia Christiansen returns to Deep Haven, certain she isn’t brave enough for the adventures she’s dreamed of. The last thing she expects is for the man who broke her heart to cross the Atlantic and beg forgiveness.

Heir to a European hotel dynasty, Roark St. John has trekked from one exotic locale to another, haunted by tragedy and the expectations that accompany his last name. Amelia is the first woman to give him a reason to stop running. He’ll do anything for a second chance—even contend with Amelia’s old flame, who is intent on sending Roark packing.

While one surprise after another leaves Amelia reeling, Roark’s continued presence only highlights the questions pursuing her. Like him, is she running from the life God has called her to? Could finding her new place mean leaving home behind?

Back in Deep Haven, Minnesota, Amelia Christiansen feels certain she has failed in life. The romance she felt so sure of is over, and her dreams feel dashed as she picks up the same routine from her youth, even reigniting a high-school relationship. However, Amelia’s heart has changed, and she yearns for the adventure and romance she experienced during her semester abroad. As inspirational author Warren (Always on My Mind, 2015) continues the story of the Christiansens, another member of this large family learns what it means to trust in family, faith, and love. Roark St. John, Amelia’s European suitor, has always longed for the type of community Amelia has always known, so when she leaves him behind, he knows he must do whatever it takes to win back her heart. Readers will warm to the couple as they struggle between wanting freedom and the comfort of the familiar, passionate love and the safety of hidden feelings. When they decide to live in faith instead of fear, they realize that adventure and love can coexist.
