The woman was young, beautiful, and obviously pregnant. Logan Marsh wondered what had urged her to walk into the icy, dark waters of Wellington Harbour, and whether she would thank him for rescuing her. Staying at a women's refuge run by Logan's aunt Greer, Taylor can feel life returning to her soul, but she won't speak about the mystery of her baby's father to anyone. Still unsure of her own feelings about all that has happened, Taylor draws strength from Logan's friendship and faith. But with all that she has to face, will it be enough? And can there ever be anything more than just friendship between them - especially when it seems Logan's ex-girlfriend is less "ex" than he has claimed? Meanwhile Donny, a young man with Down syndrome, has a secret he's been hiding. Worried, and unsure how to handle it, he waits for God's guidance, but Taylor is constantly on his mind. Told with deep insight and sensitivity, we follow Taylor's path from brokenness to restoration as God picks up the pieces and begins to put them back together as only He knows how.
