It’s about the “Days of…”

Book 1: When Caroline Atherton’s brother brought his college roommate, Rick Stratford, home for Thanksgiving fourteen years ago, he quickly became one of the family. Much like a second brother, the three of them became a tight-knit family unit, sharing their successes, failures, grief, and faith.

Leaving his wild days behind him, Rick has spent years pursuing his walk with the Lord in both wisdom and guidance, becoming a man content with his personal and professional achievements. When Caroline and Rick each independently discover their feelings change, they works hard to ignore them; unwilling to jeopardize the family dynamic. After all, they never expected to find love so close to home.

In the sparkle of snow and twinkling lights of Christmastime, Rick has the green light to romance his love. Yet despite the excitement and promise surrounding her, Caroline battles an inner struggle that threatens to sabotage their joy and their future. In the midst of the holiday season, can Rick and Caroline navigate this new path to reconcile her hidden resistance, or will tragedy steal their happiness before it begins?

Her heart, however, makes that difficult.
