About the Book
From a USA Today bestselling author comes a gripping story of mystery, romance, and pulse-pounding suspense.
How can she save the little girl next door from being exploited if nobody believes her?
Grace used to try to save people, but that was before she realized how powerless she is. Now, she avoids emotional ties, working from her secluded cabin, content with her aloneness. When eight-year-old Lily starts hanging around, Grace enjoys her company but carefully keeps her distance—until she discovers the girl is being exploited. Little though she wants to, she must get involved, even if it means risking her own safety to secure Lily’s.
Andrew can’t help but be drawn to his new neighbor and her beautiful foster child. When he learns about Lily’s disturbing history, he offers to help Grace prove her suspicions about the girl’s father. But the more they learn, the more puzzling Lily’s history seems. They work together to unravel the mystery, determined to ensure Lily ends up with a family who loves her.
But Lily’s father isn’t giving up his muse—or his obsession—that easily. He believes Lily is rightfully his, and he’ll do anything to get her back.
Don’t miss this thrilling page-turner, the latest in the addictive Coventry Saga.
BOOK EXCERPT 6
Her cell phone rang, and she snatched it up, eager to think about something else. But a glance at the screen had her groaning. She wanted to think about something else, but not that.
She rejected the call, but it rang again seconds later. When she rejected the second call, it rang a third time.
Lily giggled. “I don’t think they’re gonna stop.”
“Unfortunately, you’re not wrong. I’ll be right back.”
Grace swiped to connect and stepped back into the house. “Mama Lucy.”
“Thank God you answered.” The older woman sounded genuinely distressed. “Allison was in a car accident. She’s in the hospital.”
Grace barely knew the woman the girls home had hired to replace her. “Is she going to be okay?”
“Yes, but she broke a number of bones. It’s going to be months before she can come back to work. I was hoping—”
“I’m sorry, but no.”
She sighed, and Grace could imagine the disappointed look on the face of the white-haired woman who’d loved her so well. “Sweet daughter.”
Grace’s heart warmed at the words. Mama Lucy had called her that from the first day they’d met. It didn’t matter that she called all the girls in her care the same. To be called daughter… It had meant something. It still did.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Aside from her family and her Savior, USA Today bestselling author Robin Patchen has
two loves—writing and traveling. If she could combine them, she’d spend a lot of time
sitting in front of her laptop at sidewalk cafes and ski lodges and beachside burger
joints. She’d visit every place in the entire world—twice, if possible—and craft stories
and tell people about her Savior. Alas, time is too short and money is too scarce for
Robin to traipse all over the globe, even if her husband and kids wanted to go with her.
So she stays in Texas, shares the Good News when she can, and writes to illustrate the
unending grace of God through the power and magic of story.
