From the Back Cover:

"The book you're holding tells a very moving love story. It's honest. It's practical. But even as it addresses the real questions and concerns of single men and women it always lifts our gaze upward--to the Maker who created us for Himself."--from the foreword by Joshua Harris, bestselling author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye


We know we need to commit daily to Christ all matters of the heart and to wait upon Him. But so often it is a painful, lonely process that takes longer than we want it to.

Through letters, diary entries, and memories, she shares the temptations, difficulties, victories, and sacrifices of two young people whose commitment to Christ took priority over their love for each other.
