For Cassandra Wilson, life in the sleepy town of Union Crossing has not always been easy. Struggling with painful memories, she lives everyday wishing she could be someone she's not. Uncertain and insecure, she is sure no one could ever truly love her the way she is...until a handsome stranger walks into her heart and changes her life forever.
Jacob Dawson has come to the conclusion that of all the pleasures life has to offer, marriage is not one of them. Growing up, his home was broken right along with his heart until bitterness slowly began to squelch the burning desire to love and be loved. But then a certain redhead appears whose sweetness and childlike faith penetrate the wall he so carefully built around his heart.
Can they each let go of past disappointments and give love a chance to mend their hearts as one? Or will tragic circumstances tear their budding love apart forever? Join Cassandra and Jacob on their journey toward forgiveness, love, and...Gentle Forbearance.
