Dr. Densmore painfully gives her about 6 months to live. Sophie prays to God for strength and the answers to the questions bombarding her: How do I live out my final days in service to God? How will I make each day count as the gift that it is? As she moves forward in acceptance of her diagnosis, her focus becomes that of eternal estate planning. But then Marcus Crandall, a young husband and soon-to-be, new father, is found dead in Havendale. Sophie is called in to work the case with local detective, Park Sims. Marcus' adoring widow, Molly Crandall, is grief-stricken and needs answers to her questions. Sophie desperately wants to solve the case and provide those answers, but she is running out of time. K.L.
