Toni seems to be everything he wants in a wife, but she's holding a great deal of bitterness and anger about the past. Can David prove to Toni that true love overcomes every obstacle? Can Toni let go of the vow she clings to so carefully - the vow she believes will protect her from further pain?
KAY CORNELIUS lives in Alabama with her husband, a retired aerospace contracts specialist, and is blessed to have their two grown children and four grandchildren all living nearby. Kay first felt called to teach, a career that spanned 25 years, and then to write. Always active in her local church, she has taught Sunday school classes and has been a member of various committees. Kay hopes her books speak her belief that the love between a man and a woman is meant to be one of His greatest gifts.
