- Coleman's Texan background proves an asset in her first novel, infusing the language with a home-grown twang as she wittily and charmingly captures the larger-than-life characters and communities in urban and rural Texas.

- Publisher A poignantly rendered debut novel that follows the Texas-sized loves and losses of star-crossed newlyweds, forced by the consequences of their passion to leave upscale Houston for a small town in the panhandle. Young minister Mark Reynolds has every reason to be optimistic: he'll likely be promoted to senior minister at the largest Baptist church in Houston, and he's deeply in love with his fiancee-the lovely, independant Amanda. But his dreams and reputation are shattered when he learns that Amanda is pregnant-and things become infinitely worse when he loses his job and she loses their baby. The young couple migrates toa small town in hopes of starting anew, but the shadow of their lost child settles in Amanda's soul, and she grows reclusive towards the husband she still loves. Though determined to return home after an extended family visit, a wrong turn into Mexico leaves Amanda uncertain of her next move. A desperate search and an unlikely reunion finds the couple re-examining the life they've known and forging a new understanding of the future that stands before them.
