A tragic accident.  A heartbroken widow.  An unlikely friendship.

Following the fatal drunken-driving accident that claimed her husband and child, Leah Travers secludes herself in grief-stricken solitude. But when another near-tragedy brings her closer to the killer's family, she is irresistibly drawn into an unexpected but compelling relationship that chips away at the emotional stone she has become.

From Publishers Weekly:

A tragic accident causes a young woman to question her faith in this cross-cultural Christian love story. Leah Travers is devastated when her husband and their two-year-old son die in an accident caused by drunk driver Manuel Garcia. Although her domineering parents urge her to move back to Houston, Leah stays in Fort Worth. She finds an apartment she can afford and takes a job in publishing, working for the first time since college. But she has no friends, and she falls away from the church, tormented by the unanswerable question of why her loved ones died while Manuel walked away from the accident. Leah takes to driving around Manuel's neighborhood; though he is in prison, his pregnant wife, five kids and brother-in-law, Jacobo Martinez, still live in Fort Worth. On one such trip, Leah encounters Jacobo, who has dropped out of law school to care for his sister and her kids. Leah and Jacobo begin to meet for coffee and meals, and Jacobo takes her to his warm and welcoming nondenominational church. Just as Leah finds herself falling in love with the younger, motorcycle-riding Jacobo, readers will fall for this fast-paced romance, empathizing with Leah as she grieves and heals, cheering for Jacobo as he woos her.
