Andrew and Rachel should be on top of the world. They have just purchased their first home, and their first child is due in just a few short months. Life is good. Yet for some reason, Rachel feels uneasy, as though a cloud of foreboding has settled over their lives. Her fears are justified when preliminary tests suggest her worst fears: their baby could have Down syndrome. Unable to cope with the possibility, Andrew convinces himself that their baby is fine and turns his attentions to their reclusive neighbor and the rumors surrounding his past. Rachel, frightened for her baby and scared of what may lie in their future, becomes increasingly frustrated with Andrew and his lack of concern for their child. As the evidence for his baby's disability mounts, Andrew throws himself into solving the mystery surrounding the death of his neighbor's family. Did Hank kill his wife? What happened to Hank's child? Rachel, though hurt by Andrew's attitude, tries to be understanding and show interest in the case while at the same time preparing herself for their baby and for the worst. In the end, it will take a miracle to heal Andrew's family - and Hank's guilt over the past - though ultimately it is up to both to accept joy into their lives.

About the Author:

Todd F. Cope grew up in Spanish Fork, Utah where he still resides. As the youngest of thirteen children, he quickly learned to get along with others. After graduating from high school, he served an LDS mission to Western Australia where he met a missionary from New Zealand who would later become his wife. Todd and Denise were married in New Zealand and lived there for two years before returning to the United States so he could continue his education. He graduated from Utah Valley State College in Orem, Utah with an associate degree in nursing and later from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah with a baccalaureate degree in nursing. Most of his career has been spent in the Emergency Room. Currently he is the Director of Nursing at an assisted living center in Provo, Utah. He enjoys gardening, running and spending time with his wife and four children. Todd's love for writing dates back to the second grade when he won a poetry writing contest. He continued to be honored for his essays, poetry and prose throughout his school career. Todd has published many articles on a variety of subjects in several forums including the Ensign and New Era magazines. He is the author of The Shift, a self-published novel that inspired the CBS Television movie The Last Dance, starring Maureen O Hara.
