Scorned, penniless, and pregnant, Alex must fight for faith, family, and love.
Alexandra Fisher and Jonathan Dixon meet in a honky-tonk outside of Nashville and instantly share a mutual attraction. Raised Jewish in New England by her wealthy, controlling father who holds her in contempt, Alex learned to comply with any request to keep the peace, even agreeing to marry his ideal candidate for her husband. Georgia construction empire scion Jon accepted a long-term project in Nashville, intending to spend solitary time healing. Very much the prodigal, he realized how far he’s strayed off the path of his traditional Christian upbringing and worked to repair his relationship with God before returning home to mend fences with his family. That night, Alex decides to take control of her life while, simultaneously, a horrific news story sends Jon back into a tailspin. After instructing the waitress to keep the drinks coming, they both make bad decisions that result in permanent consequences. Back home, when Alex stands up to her father, he pulls her trust fund, closes her accounts, applies influence with her employers, and evicts her. Alone, pregnant, and cut off, she can do nothing more than journey to Atlanta, hoping Jon can help. When Alex discovers Jon is not the blue-collar construction worker she assumed, she feels betrayed. However, his family’s zest for life, love for Christ, and deep respect for each other show her how much was missing from the life she knew. She soon falls in love with Jon but doesn’t think he’ll believe her. Jon knows he’s fallen for Alex but doesn’t know how to convey the depth of his feelings. Arriving at a mutual understanding of faith while looking through very different worldviews, they cling to each other, uniting as one, and learn to connect with God. But will family strife and all their baggage destroy their marriage before it even gets off the ground?
