Rivers will assuredly make her many fans happy with her newest romance novel. Grace Moore, a divorced mother looking to restart her life afresh and recharge her spiritual journey with Jesus, and successful artist Roman Velasco, who also is on a quest, intersect when Grace is sent to Roman’s palatial home as a temporary office worker.

From the get-go, Grace is put off by Roman’s brusque manner, but her dire need for a steady job to support her infant son forces her to stick out the assignment. As God would have it, both Grace and Roman begin to see past the protective armor each has in place to guard their respective hearts.

Little by little, Grace shares her faith in God with Roman who scoffs at the outset until he literally dies and briefly enters hell. Once his body is revived, Roman’s life trajectory is forever altered as he starts on his own faith walk with Christ.

Rivers, as always, delivers a compelling, heart-wrenching storyline that elevates faith in Christ while unveiling God’s miraculous redemptive ability to restore brokenhearted people. Fans will not be disappointed as this author just keeps delving deeper into the hidden recesses of the human heart that always seeks to know God’s heart first and foremost.
