Faith is tested in small-town Whisper Canyon in this achingly emotional romance from Rosche (Glory Falls). Jace Daring vowed never to return to the town that shunned his teenage mother and forced her into a life of prostitution—until his employer chooses Whisper Canyon as the location for its newest second-chance home for victims of sex trafficking. Local therapist Haven Haviland’s family name was tarnished decades ago by Haven’s promiscuous mother. Now, Haven faces a scandal of her own that results in her closing her practice. When Jace hires Haven to mentor the women he’s taken in at his farmhouse, she sees it as an opportunity for redemption. But trust doesn’t come easy for any of the strong but scarred women in her care, particularly as they face challenges created by judgmental churchgoers and callous politicians. Jace and Haven find comfort and love in each other while rediscovering their faith through witnessing their charges’ unwavering determination to build better lives. Nothing comes easy, but Rosche handles sensitive subjects with care. This moving tale of healing, hope, and acceptance is sure to resonate with fans of inspirational romance. Agent: Tamela Hancock Murray, the Steve Laube Agency. (Aug.)
