In Search Of A Dream
Hs #908
ISBN: 9781602608818

After three years with no contract from him, Clemmie Lyons needs to put her dream of marrying Joel Litton behind her. To make the transition easier, Clemmie leaves Lyons' Refuge with all its memories of Joel and visits a friend for the summer. But nothing prepares her for the moment she discovers Joel living nearby, trying to hide a terrible secret from all who knew him. Will these two friends find a way to make their dreams reality, or will guilt over the past ultimately drive them apart?

Isaiah 42: 16: “And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.”

“I have no idea why we care so much, but we do. My parents love you, I love you. And—”

Clemmie broke off her spiel when she realized what she’d just admitted. Her mouth dropped open at her slip, her face flaming with humiliation. She whirled around and fled out the door.

In shock, she heard his steps pound behind her, closing in on her, right before he grabbed her waist. His other hand then found her arm, and he spun her around to face him. “Oh no, Clemmie. You’re not getting away that easy.” He grabbed both her arms, and she thought he might shake her. “I want some answers. And I won’t take ‘later’ or ‘soon’ this time!”

What is something you're thankful for this year?


  1. My Saviour, my family, and good health to enjoy the blessings of both.

  2. Me, too, Merry. I'm thankful for Jesus, my family, and that I'm a grandma. And just life.
    Everyday is a gift.
