Anya Mitchell feels greatly blessed. The owner of a successful Los Angeles financial services company, she is also prosperous in love, thanks so handsome writer Braxton Vance. True, they have real differences over their future and she must struggle at the same time to show her emotionally wounded cousin Sasha the right way in life. But Anya's faith in God's promise is unshakable...until the night she is brutally attacked in her office. Reeling with anger and fear, she wrestles with soul-wrenching doubt and the temptation to reply more on her own strength. Even more devastating is Braxton's insistence that she trust his version of what God wants her to do. Facing heartbreak and disillusion--and answers she never could have expected--Anya must now come to terms with what she truly believes...and discover that the joy that lies in God's surprising plan.
