He’s used to jumping out of airplanes. But jumping into love a second time…that may be too scary even for him.
Before Owen lost his wife to cancer, he promised her that he’d find someone new to love someday. It’s a promise he never plans to keep. He’s busy enough trying to get his new skydiving center in Hope Springs up and running, not to mention raising his five kids. He doesn’t have time for love. And even if he did, how would he ever find someone who could measure up to the love he lost?
Though she used to long for a large family, Emma has to admit that it doesn’t look like that’s in the Lord’s plans for her. After all, she’s 42 and has never been in love. Besides, after surviving cancer, she has other priorities now. Like checking things off her Life List. And serving the Lord with each moment he gives her. So when Owen and his children move in next door, it’s only natural that she wants to be a good neighbor to them. A good neighbor—and nothing more.
But when being a good neighbor turns into helping Owen’s family pick up the pieces after another heartbreaking loss, neither can deny that their feelings are becoming more than neighborly. But is Owen ready to open his heart again? And can Emma admit that maybe God has put a family in her future after all?
