There’s only one thing Chloe Smith has ever wanted: family. Yet the DNA results she’s received have thrown her life into a tailspin. Her utmost desire has ended up being the catalyst for shaking her faith. She doesn’t even know who she is anymore, and she’s certainly too messed up for her longtime crush to give her more than a second glance.

Darryl Jones is struggling between his past and the grace God so freely offers. His sins feel too big for him to handle, let alone expect the woman of his dreams to accept. Chloe is the only woman he’s ever wanted and the one he doesn’t deserve.

As they form a tentative relationship and examine their faith, Chloe and Darryl ache to know they are finally accepted and fully loved.

My Thoughts:

I have enjoyed every story in the Freedom Lake series! Toni Shiloh puts an enormous amount of heart, truth and the love of God into everything she writes. This heart-wrenching story of two people searching for the love of family and for acceptance is sure to give you a clearer image of our Father and his amazing love for us all!

Chole and Darryl are two people longing for family, for grace and acceptance. In truth, that is all something that we each long for. In learning to rely more fully on God, to wait on His perfect timing we can come to grow in our relationship with God.

This story wraps up the series beautifully, teaches us lessons, and invites us to draw closer to God. I give this wonderful story 4 stars and would encourage you to grab a copy and settle in for a delightful story that is sure to warm your heart!
