It’s easy to recognize another’s pain. The tough part is facing your own.
When Dorothy Thompson returns to Cherish, SC, to play piano for her brother’s wedding, memories and fear nearly paralyzes her fingers. If anyone she knew back in high school discovers her secret, the whispers will start. Fake. Fraud. Failure.
It’s not as if she can blame God for her troubles. No, she did that all by herself. But, remembering His lessons, she’s fighting to get back on track. All she can do is pray the wedding vocalist-her brother’s friend Ryan, a rising opera star-won’t notice the way her hands shake.
When Ryan Edwards sets foot inside a church for the first time in years, he’s no longer the pitiable kid from the poor side of town, but someone who’s made it on his own. Without God’s help-not that He ever cared about misfits like Ryan, anyway.
When he lays eyes on Dorothy-all grown up, more beautiful than ever, and clearly hiding something-he almost forgets why he left Cherish. Almost. But while his heart yearns to call the tune, he can’t forget his hard-earned career comes first…and his old friend’s little sister is off limits.
