Kidnapped as a baby, Moxie Weatherby grew up without her two older sisters. Now the women are reunited in Santa Sofia, Florida, where family, friends and faith are more important than ever.

Moxie must learn a thing or two about herself when the gorgeous editor of the local newspaper writes a story about her unusual history. Not that he knows everything.

Jo is determined to get her woman's ministry, the Barefoot Believers, up and running. So why is a handsome preacher asking her to slow way down?

Kate plans her wedding to her long-lost love, a single dad who's just become a grandfather. But are Kate and Vince really ready to say "I do"?

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    "That's it?" Kate Cromwell used her antique walking stick, which she had relied upon as a cane since having her foot broken a month earlier, to wedge her way between her sisters. "Surely that's not the whole piece? The story of our lives reduced to a few poorly researched, mistake-ridden paragraphs? I mean, really, most of us weren't even interviewed by that... that..."

    "Journalist." Moxie Weatherby, whose legal name was not now nor had it ever been Maxine, spoke the word the way she might have said cockroach. Then she appeared to reconsider. Cockroaches weren't all that bad, after all, to a person raised in Florida. "Or should I say so-called journalist?"

    "Yes, thank you, Moxie." Kate leaned over the kitchen table where her mother and Billy J had spread the pages of the local paper out for all to see. "This so-called journalist reduced our whole story down to 'I feel the Lord's hand in this, I tell you what'?"

    "There are worse things that could be said about people's lives, Kate." Despite her wise but decidedly snooty-sounding comment, Jo stretched up on her tanned toes and strained to get a better look. "Though I daresay the man could have found so much more to flesh out the story if he'd just made a little effort."

    "By interviewing you, no doubt?" Kate meant it as a tease. Only after seeing the fleeting but very real flash of unhappiness in her younger, blonder and more conventionally pretty sister's face did she realize she'd hit a nerve.

    She winced. As a doctor and more recently a patient, she should have had more compassion. As a sister? She wasn't quite so cautious about Jo's "nobody ever pays enough attention to me" complex.

    "At least you got your title worked into the mix. I'm just one of two sisters 'formerly of Atlanta.'" Jo pouted in her perfect not-too-pouty way. Everything Jo did, from being one of the most successful up-and-coming Realtors in Atlanta to chucking it all to work for the Lord at Traveler's Wayside Chapel, was done to perfection.

    What did Jo have to be put out about? Kate was the one with the rekindled romance--that still hadn't quite seemed to spark into full blaze--with hometown handyman, Vince Merchant. Not to mention her new start as a partner in the local Urgent Care Clinic. And the fact that she was doing all this with a foot basically smashed to smithereens thanks to their own mother's careless driving?

    Of the pair of them Kate did think her own story was the more interesting, giving her the right to feel more insulted by the lack of recognition. She demonstrated that fact by angling her shoulder in to block her sister's view.

    Jo gave Kate a shove, in that "loving" way the sisters had with one another.

    Kate almost fell splat on her backside.

    Jo pretended not to notice.

    Kate clomped backward until she got her balance, thumping her cane on the old linoleum floor of the circa 1940s cottage.

    "Careful. We don't want a repeat of what happened on the front porch!" Dodie scolded Kate, who wanted to blurt out "it's not my fault" but knew they'd take her to mean the big gaping hole in the front porch was not her fault--when clearly, it was.

    If Kate had heeded the signs Moxie had put on the front porch warning them not to use it, Kate would never have fallen through the rotting wood. But if she hadn't fallen through, she would never have drawn the attention of Vince Merchant, who came charging across the street to her rescue.

    Vince Merchant.

    Kate sighed.

    Everyone looked at her.

    Kate's cheeks felt as if someone had just opened the valve on a steam radiator right...
