Dinah Traynell is trapped in a life that is not her own

Raised in a toxic church, Dinah has been forced to surrender mentally and physically to her sociopathic pastor's every demand for her entire twenty-four years. Though she dreams of escape, this is the only world she's ever known and so she stays. But when Dr. Matthew Nicholas - stranded, penniless, and unwilling to return home - appears on Dinah's doorstep in the dark of night, Dinah glimpses the light of a different day.

Matthew is immediately drawn to Dinah, and is thankful for the opportunity to work on her family's ranch. Watching her struggle with the realization that the faith she was raised with is flawed, he's soon torn between his desire to help her and the fear of getting too involved. Then, suddenly, the unexpected lands on their doorstep: an abandoned baby. Now two lost souls must learn to open up and trust each other for the sake of this child. . . and for their own chances at a real future.
