Publisher's Description

Beloved author Lori Wick presents a new standalone in the tradition of her bestselling Sophie's Heart.


After losing her parents, Arcineh Bryant lives
with her grandfather as a girl. But growing up without her family causes her to
hold resentment toward the man who took her in. Years later, when she meets a
man she thinks she may love, she doubts whether she can trust her own heart.


A character-rich journey leads Arcineh back to her
grandfather's home where there are surprises, questions, and for the first time
in her life, an answer to "who will love me forever?" This compelling story
about a woman's hunger for acceptance and wholeness points the reader home to God's love.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Prolific Christian novelist Wick (Sophie's Heart.) produces a predictable stand-alone novel about family strife, reconciliation and religious conversion. When young Arcineh Bryant's parents are killed in a car crash, she goes to live with her doting, wealthy grandfather. Despite her great loss, Arcineh excels there-she does well in her classes, is popular at school and has no trouble spending her grandfather's money on shoes and pocketbooks. Her cousin, Quinn, becomes terrifically jealous of Arcineh, and all manner of tensions ensue in the extended family. Wick's descriptions of this family friction are repetitive and unsatisfying; simply piling on another scene in which Arcineh's aunt is trying to defend Quinn's obnoxious behavior doesn't account for why the Bryant family is so beset by discord. Of course, the rediscovery of Christian faith is part and parcel of some family members' eventual reunion. The religious scenes, to which much of the last third of the novel are devoted, proceed in heavy-handed dialogue, and throughout, Wick's prose is bland ("The big day had finally come"). With more than five million copies of her inspirational romance novels in print, Wick is an expert in the genre, yet the romantic subplot here holds no surprises, and the inspiration falls flat.

    This review was written for White Chocolate Moments.
    I must say that when you're reading this book, there's no hint that Lori wrote it. All of her books usually follow a pattern of the 1800s whereas this one is in 1992 to 2004! Its obvious she's not used to writing in this century because the Epilogue says its 12 years later which would take the story to 2014!!! Also, I was really confused at the beginning about when the accident occurred. It doesn't give the date at Chapter 1, then as I read on she says that Arcie was going to her school since she was 7 (for 10 years) which made Arcie 17! That meant the accident was 6 years after the Prologue! I later found out how incorrect that was, but I spent a few chapters torn in confusion. I'll leave you to find out!

    The story is also very long, covering over 10 years which I almost lost enthusiasm and took an unusual number of days to finish. I must admit I was very glad I finished it. Overall, it was a very nice book about trust and love and brings out the soft side of you. I almost never read it because of the reveiws that say how sad it is. I wouldn't say its not sad but the events make the story seem so real and Arcie's brave and sweet. You'll love Arcineh! She's awesome and special. And the Epilogue gets 100%! Well worth reading!

    Didn't read like a Lori Wick book. I was lost from page one and found no take away value by the last page. Disappointing from an excellent author.

    I found this book a little long and confusing at times. I don't think there was a great enough motivation for Arcie to run away and stay away for so long. It seemed inconsistant with her character. Also, I would have appreciated more character developement.

    One of my all-time favorite Lori Wick novels (I couldn't believe there were actual lackluster reviews). I have read it three times now, and have bawled my eyes out each time.

    To be perfectly honest, I bought the book for its cover. I happen to love chocolate, and I figured that any book with such a great title must be worth reading. :P Over all it was a good book. But while the separation between Arcineh and her grandfather adds a plot twist, it doesn't really make sense. I could never really understand why Arcineh stayed away for as long as she did, or why she felt such a pressing need to leave in the first place. Her cousin was annoying, but putting up with her better than running away? Apparently Arcineh thought so. Don't get me wrong, I like the book, and it has a sweet ending. :D
