Amy Gallagher is an aspiring writer working as an English teacher in small-town Ohio just to pay the bills. All her dreams start to unravel as rejections pile up - both from publishers and from her boyfriend. But just as Amy fears her life is stuck in a holding pattern, she meets the mysterious, attractive, and unavailable Eli.

Amy struggles to walk the fine line between friendship and something more with Eli, even as staying true to her faith becomes increasingly complicated. 

 "Pierce crafts a tight, deliciously engrossing novel from start to finish. Readers will be captivated by Amy's relationships, struggles, and choices as much as they will be riveted by the author's seamless portrayal of them. This novel can—and should—be enjoyed not only by Christian readers but anyone in search of a great read."
