A jilted bride. A wounded soldier. A best friend that stands in the way of their love.
Life ruined John Ward for any woman long before the Great War ruined him physically, but he might be willing to make an exception for the pretty blonde from the seedy speakeasy. However, when he discovers that the beauty is the long-time love of his best friend, he resigns himself to avoiding her at all cost.
Twice jilted Esther Albright is determined to trust God with her future, even if that future leaves her a spinster. But when a brooding news reporter comes to town, his hazel eyes and arrogant smirk test Esther’s resolve to remain single.
Avoiding love isn’t easy. Mutual attraction and fate keep drawing John and Esther together, until tragedy brings home the one person that could keep them apart. Will John find a way to accept love, from God and from Esther, or will mistaken identity and loyalty to a friend make him walk away from both?
