Robbed more than once of what he desired from life, Ben Williams is disillusioned with his concept of fairness. The only person alive that matters to him is his son, but his work takes him from home, leaving someone else to parent the boy. The railman hides his resentment behind a facade of good-naturedness and an illusion of self-reliance. He has every intention of his mind outwitting his emotions.
Eighteen year old Katherine McGinn is unaware that she views herself as an emotional victim, despite her strong faith. Her longing for acceptance and a desire for more from her common life are both held prisoner by her practicality. The only world she knows exists inside a rural community where she shares a house with her siblings and where mundane work is a necessity for survival. She guards her emotions for fear of disappointment.
When their lives cross paths, Ben and Katherine attempt to help one another move beyond their inner conflict, but their bond is threatened by new circumstances that demand the need for forgiveness.
A former school teacher, Kim Williams has spent the past twenty-five-plus years on staff at her local church, First Baptist Woodstock, overseeing ministry to young children. Kim has traveled in both the US and abroad conducting training in leadership and ministry to children. She had a desire to write for a long time; one day her story met her head on, and she got busy making words into sentences, sentences into paragraphs, and paragraphs into chapters.
She resides in the Atlanta metro area with her husband, whom she met the summer after fifth grade. They have two grown children who are educators and who have the best spouses a parent could hope for. Kim and her husband are also grandparents to an adorable little boy. Her children and grandchild live nearby, and that makes her very happy! Kim is a member of ACFW & AWSA, and in addition to her social media, can be found on Goodreads, Bookbub, and All Authors.
