Star Youngblood has come a long way in her life. Her childhood had been rotten to the core and she used drugs and alcohol to forget. But now, she's been clean for a year and she has God in her life.

Priscilla Kelly had a dream to visit Ireland for her anniversary, but plans change. Her husband passed away. She's decided to go anyway. Paul refuses to allow her to go...so she takes Star.

I loved this story and it's amazing how often when God is working in our lives, we see it as punishment instead of polishing.

Pete Thompson happened upon a bad accident. After helping the driver get her pets out of the vehicle, he finds out it’s the person renting his late grandparents’ house. She’s a peculiar person.

Skye Youngblood, or Sydney “Syd” Smith as she’s calling herself, hated being back in Alabama. The fear she lives with is too real here. But Miss Lydia and Sparrow need her. So, she’ll be working on Dauphin Island at the Sea Lab for the next few months. As a loner, the job suits her, working with sea life and caring for two dogs and one cat. Animals that are broken, like she is.
A touching story about a woman who needs God in her life to help her heal from past abuse. A man who knows he’s nothing without God’s help. Unique characters, both human and animal, and a page-turning story on a sensitive subject. Very well written, considering the sensitive nature of the story.
