Arcineh Bryant is searching for a love that will last forever, but she's beginning to think her quest is impossible. An orphan, she resents the grandfather who raised her and is betrayed by friends she thought of as family. When she falls for a handsome stranger, she wonders . . . can she trust him with her heart? 350 pages, softcover from Harvest.
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.
