Maybe in the wide-open country she can learn to breathe again... Happily married and owner of two successful boutiques, Jade longs to begin a family with her husband, Max. But when she discovers that Max has an illegitimate son — who he wants her to help raise — Jade’s life is turned upside down. She flees to her childhood home, a rambling Iowa farmhouse, with enough room to breathe. There — while her mother’s health grows fragile, and the tug of her first love grows stronger — Jade begins to question everything she thought she knew about family, love, and motherhood. In the wide-open landscape, Jade begins to see a future that doesn’t rest on the power of her past, but in the goodness of God’s tender mercies.

*Starred Review* Everyone has a cross to bear, but Jade Benson’s is so heavy it seems to be made of solid lead. Her attorney husband, Max, is a recovering addict. Her sister faces danger on a daily basis in Guatemala. Her mother, a former hippie with terminal cancer, wants to leave Jade’s home in Whisper Hollow, Tennessee, to go home to die. Jade and her mother-in-law walk in on her father-in-law and another woman. A freak car crash destroys the entire front of Jade’s store, and infertility is a dark cloud over her head. Then comes the final, crushing blow. Her friend Rice dies in a solo plane crash, leaving a little son behind, and the father is none other than Max, who wants Jade to raise the boy as their own. Popular country singer–writer Evans (A Little Bit Stronger) and talented Christian fiction author Hauck have teamed up to pen this second installment in Jade’s journey (The Sweet By and By, 2010). Hang on for an emotional ride as a woman who married into a Southern soap opera learns to forgive and trust again. --Shelley Mosley
